Mendez, Aida, Ed.; Lee, Caroline, Ed.
This conference report is a compilation of dialogues and speeches about the problems of educating Mexican-Americans. Recognizing the influence of the Mexican-American culture, the participants exchanged information about programs for adults, scholarships and vocational opportunities, teaching English as a second language, curriculum innovations, child and family health, parent involvement, preschool and Federal programs, and testing and counseling. The major speech presented is a discussion of Mexican-American stereotypes and of "Quinto Sol," a program to help Mexican-American youth get into college. (LB)
