To Change the World: The Use of American Indian Education in the Philippines
Paulet, Anne
History of Education Quarterly, v47 n2 p173-202 May 2007
In 1980, Walter L. Williams suggested that experience with U.S. Indian policy had influence on the debates over Philippine annexation. This was the first direct connection made between experience with American Indians and Filipino policy, however it only focuses on annexation debates and does not explore education at all. A more recent work by Julian Go discusses efforts to educate Filipinos politically, so they would be prepared for self-government. In this article, the comparison is with American policies in Puerto Rico, not with American Indians. Several works on the 1904 World's Fair draw comparisons between how Indians and Filipinos were exhibited at the fair, but these are studies of display and race and do not focus on policy or educational efforts. There are also numerous studies of both Indian and Filipino educational policies, but none of them connect the two policies. This article breaks new ground by suggesting that American actions in the Philippines had a precedent in American actions at home with American Indians. (Contains 115 footnotes.)
