PREFACE.

OFFICE OF INDIAN AFFAIRS,

Washington, December 1, 1915. The accompanying Course of Study has been prepared for use throughout the Indian school service and is to be adopted therein.

It emphasizes the study of home economics and agricultural subjects, because any attempt to change the Indian population of this country from a dependent to an independent people within a reasonable length of time must give special consideration to the improvement of the Indians' homes and to the development of their lands. The usual subjects of school instruction are not neglected, but they are subordinated to subjects which, if learned practically, lead directly to productive efficiency and self-support.

This edition is tentative and is placed in the schools at this time for the purpose of inviting constructive criticisms and suggestions which will be considered in connection with a revised and more permanent edition.

Cato SELLS, Commissioner. 15537—15—l
