BIA EDUCATION RESEARCH BULLETIN, YEAR 1973

PURPOSES OF BIA EDUCATION RESEARCH BULLETIN

The main purpose of any bulletin as the one being developed by the BIA Office of Indian Education Programs is to disseminate information to a wider audience. In this instance, the purpose is to provide educational research information for professional educators involved in the education of Indian children and youth and for Indian communities whose children attend school.

Another aspect of the purpose of the Research Bulletin pertains to the belief that education can be improved via research and evaluation activities that are devoted to a determination of effective practices. Hopefully, practices in the education of Indian children will be improved if information about effective approaches and techniques reach a wider audience. Therefore, the Bulletin will have a major focus on research in education that describes effective practices.

Another purpose of the Bulletin will be to provide a vehicle for educators to use to exchange information. It is a well known fact that literally hundreds of professional educators have performed major and minor research regarding their own interests in working with Indian children. Some of these works have been prepared in the form of theses and dissertations. So, the Bulletin will serve as a communication device for professional educators to use in order to share their findings with an audience greater than the immediate school or the college or university that granted them a masters or doctors degree. Educators are invited to submit an abstract of their thesis or dissertation (or both) for dissemination and for possible inclusion in the Bulletin in a full article.
