This one goes back 85 years.  Part 1 and Part 2 of the Meriam Report from 1928 deal with Indian Education.  You can read the whole report on NARF’s website here.

A quote:

It is true in all education, but especially in the education of people situated as are the American Indians, that methods must be adapted to individual abilities, interests, and needs. A standard course of study, routine classroom methods, traditional types of schools, even if they were adequately supplied-and they are not-would not solve the problem.
