Educational Neglect: Reform Reports and the Schooling of American Indians.
Tippeconnic, John W., III
What references, if any, do some of the major educational reform reports make about the American Indian? Reform reports were reviewed to determine their content regarding minorities in general and American Indians in particular. With the exception of the Carnegie Forum report and possibly the National Governors' Association report, very little was said about minorities and virtually nothing was said about American Indians. The reports from the U.S. Department of Education were especially conspicuous in their neglect. Reports addressing disadvantaged students were also reviewed, as were two efforts that deal specifically with Indian education. Finally, this document discusses how such national reform reports affect American Indian education. The document concludes by linking such exclusion of American Indians and the failure of their school systems in continuing institutional racism. This paper contains 28 references. (TES)
