CHAPTER 370 AN ACT TO PROVIDE BETTER EDUCATIONAL AD- VANTAGES FOR MEMBERS OF THE INDIAN RACE IN EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA NOT OTHERWISE PRO- VIDED FOR. WHEREAS, there are no provisions now made by the State for the education of certain Indian children of Eastern North Carolina beyond the high school grades; and WHEREAS, there are Indian schools in the Counties of Samp- son, Hoke, Scotland, Cumberland, Bladen, Person, and Harnett; and WHEREAS, the Indian children enrolled in these schools have no place provided by the State to pursue their education beyond the eleventh grade and in some instances not even past the elementary grades; and WHEREAS, ample provisions have been provided by the State for higher education and teacher training of the other races; and WHEREAS, it is the desire of the department of education that better educational advantages be provided for the Indian chil- dren, including courses of instruction in teacher training and vocational education in order that equal justice under the Con- stitution may be done toward these people: Now, therefore, The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:
That the State Board of Education be, and it is hereby, authorized and empowered to establish a vocational and normal school at any place it may deem most suitable for teaching and training the young Indian men and women not otherwise provided for.
