Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter in reference to a revision in the course of study for Indian schools. Pratt details the current course of study at the Carlisle Indian School and notes that the change in policy would require an additional two years of study. In addition, he notes that many reservation and Catholic schools overly focus on reading at the expense of math and other studies. Pratt ends by discussing the industrial training at the school and the value of actual production over theory.
