THE DISADVANTAGED MIGRANT AND URBAN PUBLIC EDUCATION.
FOWLER, WILLIAM L.
MUCH OF THIS ADDRESS IS DEVOTED TO AN OUTLINE OF THE SCHOOL'S ROLE IN EDUCATING THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDENT. EFFORTS SHOULD BE MADE TO ACCULTURATE THE STUDENT AND TRAIN HIM TO ADEQUATELY HANDLE HIS OWN CULTURE. THIS CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH COMMUNITY SCHOOLS, MULTILEVEL SPANISH LANGUAGE COURSES, THE STUDY OF SPANISH-SPEAKING REGIONS AND THEIR CULTURAL CONTRIBUTION, AND BILINGUAL SCHOOL PERSONNEL. OTHER EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES APPROPRIATE FOR THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDENT INCLUDE FLEXIBLE GUIDANCE AND TESTING PROGRAMS AND A VOCATIONAL PROGRAM ADAPTED TO A TECHNOLOGICALLY CHANGING COMMUNITY. IN GENERAL, PERSONNEL IN ALL OF TODAY'S SCHOOLS SHOULD BE RESPONSIVE TO SOCIAL CHANGE AND MINORITY-GROUP NEEDS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS AND PSYCHOMETRISTS (SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 19, 1965). (LB)
