GROWING CONCERN AMONG THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN POPULATION, AND THE NATION AS A WHOLE, CONCERNING EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITIES FACED BY THE SPANISH-SPEAKING MINORITY POPULATION POINTS TO THE REAWAKENING OF THEIR SOCIETY AND THEIR GRADUAL ASSUMPTION OF A GREATER DEGREE OF PRODUCTION IN SOCIETY. THOUGH FOR THE MOST PART MANY INEQUALITIES STILL EXIST, SOME EFFORTS ARE BEING MADE TO INTEGRATE CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION, AND THE NEEDS OF MEXICAN-AMERICANS. RISING INVOLVEMENT AND HIGHER EDUCATION LEVEL OF THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY ITSELF IS DIRECTING ATTENTION TO EDUCATIONAL ISSUES AND THE INTEGRATION OF MEXICAN AMERICAN PERSONNEL INTO RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS AND EDUCATIONAL POSITIONS. IT IS HOPED THAT THE ELEVATION OF THESE PERSONNEL WILL PROVIDE HEROS OR MODELS FOR THE YOUNG. WITH CAREER MODELS AVAILABLE TO EMULATE, PERHAPS GRADUALLY THE LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL BARRIERS FACED BY MANY OF THE PAST AND PRESENT MEXICAN AMERICAN POPULATION CAN BE ELIMINATED. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN THE MAY 1968 ISSUE OF "AMERICAN EDUCATION", PAGES 25-27. (DK)
