Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Indian educational boarding schools gained popularity in the United States after the Civil War, with the government's intention to assimilate the children into the white culture. By 1878 the Indians were located on reservations, but school facilities to accommodate only about 20% were available (Smith, 1976, p. 164). Originally considered a solution to the "Indian problem," the boarding school system became part of the problem.
