PUERTO RICAN PROFILES, RESOURCE MATERIALS FOR TEACHERS.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
THE LARGE INFLUX OF PUERTO RICAN RESIDENTS INTO NEW YORK CITY HAS BEEN MOST DEEPLY FELT IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. PROBLEMS HAVE ARISEN BECAUSE AMERICAN TEACHERS FIND IT DIFFICULT TO COPE WITH THE CHALLENGE OF NEW CUSTOMS AND LANGUAGE PRESENTED BY THESE STUDENTS. TO HELP BROADEN THE UNDERSTANDING IN THIS NEW STUDENT-TEACHER RELATIONSHIP, INFORMATION ABOUT PUERTO RICAN LIFE, BOTH IN PUERTO RICO AND IN NEW YORK CITY, HAS BEEN GATHERED. THE FIRST SECTION IS ABOUT PUERTO RICO, AND GIVES AN HISTORICAL BACKGROUND, INSIGHT INTO THE COUNTRY'S ECONOMY AND ITS UNITED STATES DOMINATED POLITICS, AND INFORMATION ABOUT THE PUERTO RICAN'S PROBLEM IN THE UNITED STATES, REASONS FOR MIGRATING, AND THE TYPES OF MIGRANTS. ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO THEIR PROBLEMS OF ADJUSTMENT TO A NEW ENVIRONMENT INCLUDING HOUSING AND WORK FACILITIES. THE ECONOMIC STATUS OF THE IMMIGRANTS, THE TYPES OF NEIGHBORHOODS IN WHICH THEY LIVE, THE SCHOOLS THEY ATTEND, AND THE INTERACTION OF PUERTO RICAN AND AMERICAN CULTURES ARE ALSO DISCUSSED.
