14 p. 
Summary

The institution of Indian school boards in rural Indian communities and on reservations has accompanied a return toward local control in education. Local control by ethnic communities transforms power relationships, and this changes attitudes of educators toward students -- although local boards often lack the educational expertise to attempt changes in educational policy and programs. Erickson, comparing Rough Rock Demonstration School to other kinds of schools serving Navajo students, reports that (1) Federal schools are equal or better in program and are more efficiently operated and (2) the Indian school board at Rough Rock spends little time on matters of basic educational policy. Despite the furore caused by the study, honest and critical appraisals from outside researchers are necessary to assist and improve local school boards and to prevent the demise of local control as a reform movement.
