Summary

Only recently have some researchers begun to study and document efforts by Indian parents to ensure their children an adequate education. These research studies deal with the education of Indian Americans. Historical perspective is said to be an important part of this research and the two historical studies presented deal with the Colville Indians (Washington) and the Fort Berthold Indians (North Dakota). Since social science studies of specific reservations and of Indian schools can be of great potential value, different sections address the following: (1) the school and Indian culture, (2) an ethnographic study of the Chemawa boarding school for Indians in Oregon, and (3) studies of Indians in an urban area, Detroit. Another issue that is addressed is that of the extent to which teachers who educate both Indian and Anglo pupils are aware of sociocultural differences between the two groups. Questionning of established governmental policy in the field of Indian education is crucial and a final section addresses the role of federal policy in Indian affairs. The remainder of this document is devoted to a discussion of recent research bearing on the interrelationship of desegregation and the movement of people, mainly students. First, studies covering two states, three cities, and one county are reviewed. Second, a study of segregation in suburbs is examined, and third, the general argument about desegregation and white flight is updated. It is noted that the findings of the research reported here contradict many of the propositions that underly the Coleman thesis of white flight. It is also noted that unnoticed, residential segregation has found a welcome home in the suburbs. Finally, with respect to the white flight argument, both sides conceded that more than school desegregation may affect it. Until the study reported here, this was a matter of speculation.
