Abstract:

Focusing on three education levels (precollegiate, collegiate, and the graduate and professional levels), the recommendations are based both on "what appears to work" and on "what appears to be worth trying". A fourth group of recommendations is aimed at responsible governmental agencies and professional and other organizations. The recommendations include: that an assessment of science and mathematics education in schools serving Indian students be conducted; essential characteristics of successful approaches to Indian education in these areas be integrated; bilingual techniques must be used where language retention is maximal, especially on the elementary levels; an ethnoscientific approach to teaching high school science be used; concentrated attention should be given to math deficiencies; special programs must be established in fields where they do not now exist, I.E., physical sciences, mathematics, and resources development; greater efforts should be directed at identifying and recruiting Indian students for participation in special programs for minorities in scientific and technical fields; the developing Graduate Centers for Minority Education in Science and Engineering must make sure that they include within their plans, programs and staffing for the special needs of Indian students; adequate financial aid must be available to graduate students; some graduate and professional programs should conscientiously include a multi-cultural focus, specifically an Indian focus, in their training. (Nq).
