Family Education Model: Meeting the Student Retention Challenge.
HeavyRunner, Iris; DeCelles, Richard
Journal of American Indian Education, v41 n2 p29-37 2002
American Indian educators, social workers, and university advisors at five Montana colleges developed the Family Education Model to replicate within the college culture the extended family structure often found on reservations. This enhances Native students' sense of belonging and leads to higher retention rates. Family support is given to any family of marginal and disadvantaged students that needs help. (TD)
