MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDY PROJECT. ADVANCE REPORT 7, THE SCHOOLING GAP--SIGNS OF PROGRESS.
GREBLER, LEO
THIS PROJECT REPORT PRESENTS A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE LOW ATTAINMENT IN FORMAL SCHOOLING OF THE MEXICAN-AMERICANS. THE DATA WERE TAKEN FROM THE 1950 AND 1960 CENSUS REPORTS AND THE "STATISTICAL ABSTRACT OF THE UNITED STATES." COMPARISONS WERE MADE AMONG THE ANGLO, SPANISH SURNAME, AND NON-WHITE POPULATIONS, ON THE FOLLOWING TOPICS--THE SCHOOLING RECORD OF THE ADULT POPULATION, THE YOUNGER GENERATION, ATTAINMENT OF SPECIFIC LEVELS OF EDUCATIONAL DIFFERENCES IN METROPOLITAN AREAS, TOTAL SCHOOL ENROLLMENT, AND EDUCATIONAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NATIVE AND FOREIGN BORN SPANISH SURNAME PEOPLE. IN COMPARING THE TOTAL SPANISH POPULATION TO THE ANGLO POPULATION, CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND IN EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT. A SIMILAR ANALYSIS OF THE YOUNGER SPANISH POPULATION SHOWED OVERALL GAINS IN EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT. THIS REPORT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE DIVISION OF RESEARCH, GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA 90024, FOR $1.50. (JM)
