THE EDUCATIONAL STATUS OF A MINORITY.
SAMORA, JULIAN
THE EDUCATIONAL SITUATION OF SPANISH-SPEAKING PERSONS OF THE SOUTHWEST IS DISCUSSED. IN 10 OUT OF THE 15 TEXAS METROPOLITAN AREAS, 40 PERCENT OR MORE OF THE SPANISH POPULATION HAS EXPERIENCED LESS THAN 4 YEARS OF SCHOOLING, IN EIGHT OUT OF 10 CALIFORNIA METROPOLITAN AREAS, 20 PERCENT OR MORE ARE IN THE SAME CATEGORY. PERCENTAGES RISE AS ONE PROCEEDS NORTH IN TEXAS, CALIFORNIA, ARIZONA, AND NEW MEXICO. TWO REASONS FOR SUCH A SITUATION ARE OFFERED--DEFAULT OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM IN PROVIDING EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY IN EDUCATION FOR ETHNIC GROUPS, AND LACK OF MOTIVATION FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION ON THE PART OF THE SPANISH-SPEAKING. IT IS HELD THAT EDUCATIONAL CURRICULA SHOULD RECOGNIZE TO A MUCH GREATER EXTENT THE CUTLURAL HERITAGE OF SPANISH-SPEAKING STUDENTS. A BASIC APPROACH TO BARRIERS AND INEQUALITIES CONTRIBUTING TO EARLY DROPOUT SHOULD BE DEVELOPED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THEORY INTO PRACTICE," VOLUME 2, JUNE 1963.
