National Conference: Meeting the Special Educational Needs of Urban Puerto Rican Youth. Final Report.
Nunez, Louis; Bahn, Charles
To identify the educational problems of Puerto Rican youth in the United States, Aspira Inc. sponsored a 2-day conference for educators and leaders of Puerto Rican and Spanish-speaking communities in 37 cities in 19 states. A commissioned study, "The Losers" (UD 007622), served as a stimulus for discussion by the participants. The conference proceedings have been disseminated (UD 007623) and a followup questionnaire has been sent to the participants to determine the success of the conference and to learn what specific action has been taken in various communities to improve the education of Puerto Rican youth.
