Arguments for Integration in the Field of Education in Northern Michigan
Beardslee, Lois
Multicultural Education, v11 n3 p29-35 Spr 2004
As a Native American with advanced college training in the field of education in northwest lower Michigan, the author has increasingly encountered denial on the part of educational professionals in the region as a response to statistics on race. During 2002, she spent nine months reviewing and renewing her statistical sources for use in nonfiction essays and presentations. Those statistics that she has been able to renew have been consistent with sources she used a decade ago, indicating very little progressive change in socioeconomic behavior toward Native Americans in the field of education. Significantly fewer statistics are available today than a decade ago, and even the quantity of statistics can be interpreted as a cultural indicator in terms of interracial relations. For the purposes of statistical presentation, the author has created a fictional Native American female character, Jane Doe. This article presents statistics about Jane in comparison to the general population, which includes both sexes and all ethnic groups.
