The Legal Framework for Parental Involvement in Indian Education.
Warner, Linda Sue
Indian control of Indian education, whether defined as control by the individual parent, parental school board or committee, or tribal council, has had legislative support since the passage of the Indian Self-Determination Act in 1978. While the authority for overseeing the federal trust responsibility for Indian people remains with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, contemporary educational agenda have been directed to include laws and regulations that impact public school districts as well. The legal framework for involvement of Indian parents in the education of their children has its basis in past and present federal legislation. Several laws that impact Indian students were incorporated into legislation that sought to protect parental rights of all parents, yet have far-reaching consequences for the involvement of parents in Indian education. This paper highlights the requirements or allowances for parental involvement in the Johnson O'Malley Act, Impact Aid, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Indian Elementary/Secondary School Assistance Act, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, the Indian Child Welfare Act, the Elementary and Secondary Improvement Amendments, and the Native American Languages Act. A reference list of public laws, articles, books, and court cases is included. (KS)
