Schools are where children are taught to integrate into society, and schools represent a major problem for native children - whether they are religious schools with native teachers; residential schools, which tear children away from their families and traditional values to turn them into the white man's conception of civilized people; or public day schools, where native children find it nearly impossible to balance the white view they are taught in school with the language and values they learn at home. Result: the Seminole of Florida resist being integrated, the Miccosukee decided not to fight but to join, and the Cree took back their own schools.
