A venture in Indian education and minority children and the role of government: R5-186/1972-PDF

"The Federal Government has the legal responsiblity for the education of Indian children. Historically this obligation was met by maintaining schools on reserves or providing residential school facilities. When circumstances seemed to indicate, in the early 1950’s, that other alternatives were needed, we looked to the Provinces with their established education systems. While this was a necessary and inevitable development, it does not alter our basic responsibility for the education of Indian children."--p. 1.
