A Study of Equality of Educational Opportunity for Mexican Americans in Nine School Districts of the San Antonio Area. United States Commission on Civil Rights, Staff Report.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
The report is the result of a study that investigated the extent to which Mexican American students in 9 independent school districts in metropolitan San Antonio, Texas, were afforded equal educational opportunities. The districts were Alamo Heights, East Central, Edgewood, Harlandale, North East, Northside, San Antonio, South San Antonio, and Southwest. Three areas of education were investigated: (1) Anglo overrepresentation on school boards and professional staff, along with ethnic isolation of Mexican American students; (2) disparities between Mexican American and Anglo schools in terms of financial resources, teacher qualifications, and physical facilities; and (3) the impact of inadequate education on Mexican American children. The study revealed the existence of ethnic isolation and the inequality of educational opportunity for Mexican American students. Included in the report are tables of statistical findings.
