they grow up : programs for Indian elementary school students in Canada.

"The current directions of elementary school programs for Indian children are varied, dynamic, demanding and, often, experimental. This booklet presents the trends and expectations of programs offered both in federal and provincial schools attended by Indian and Inuit chiIdren. A brief look at the educational experiences of previous generations of native people provides the context for understanding the significance of developments taking place today. For some, the changes are to rapid; for others, the implemention of new approaches is not fast enough. But for all-native children and their parents, chiefs, and councils, community members, teachers, administrators, counsellers, researchers and the Canadian public in general-the positive unfolding and success of the programs is of vital interest and concern."--Preface.
