Project Teacher Excellence for Economically Deprived and Culturally Differentiated Americans.
Our Lady of the Lake Coll., San Antonio, TX.
Project Teacher Excellence for Economically Deprived and Culturally Differentiated Americans provides for the search for Mexican-Americans living in economically deprived areas of the Southwest who have potential ability but who would not go to college without financial aid. Those identified and selected for aid are admitted to Our Lady of the Lake College to participate fully in a specially designed 4-year bilingual and bicultural teacher training program. After they complete the program, they return as trained teachers to teach bilingually in the low-income Mexican-American areas from which they came. (Supporting documents and supplementary materials which are appended to the program description include publicity materials; lists of course requirements for the bachelor of arts degree in liberal studies with certification in bilingual elementary education; trainee selection criteria; and the annual program progress report (June 1968-June 1969) to the U.S. Office of Education with information on background of the students and evaluation of their progress and that of the program as a whole.)
