Carlisle Indian School
The UNITED STATES INDIAN INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL in Carlisle, Pennsylvania , generally known as CARLISLE INDIAN INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL, was the flagship Indian boarding school in the United States from 1879 through 1918. All of the school property, known as the Carlisle Barracks , is now a part of the U.S. Army War College . Founded in 1879 by Captain Richard Henry Pratt under authority of the US federal government, Carlisle was the first federally funded off-reservation Indian boarding school. It was founded on the principle that Native Americans were the equals of European-Americans, and that Native American children immersed in mainstream Euro-American culture would learn skills to advance in society. In this period, many people believed that Amerindians, a population that was numerically declining, were a vanishing race whose only hope for survival was rapid assimilation to American culture

Television Syndication
BROADCASTING SYNDICATION is the license to broadcast television programs and radio programs by multiple television stations and radio stations , without going through a broadcast network . It is common in the United States where broadcast programming is scheduled by television networks with local independent affiliates . Syndication is less of a practice in the rest of the world, as most countries have centralized networks or television stations without local affiliates; although less common, shows can be syndicated internationally. The three main types of syndication are "first-run syndication", which is programming that is broadcast for the first time as a syndicated show and is made specifically to sell directly into syndication; "off-network syndication", which is the licensing of a program that was originally run on network TV or, in some cases, first-run syndication (colloquially called a "rerun "); and "public broadcasting syndication"
