Intergroup Relations and the Education of Mexican American Children. An Advisory Report to the Board of Education, Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Intergroup Relations.
Prepared from a 3-agency team study of the Norwalk-La Mirada public schools during October through December of 1970, this problem-oriented report sets forth the results of school observations, community interviews, and staff opinion surveys, all directed toward analyzing intergroup relations and Mexican American education in this predominantly Anglo American school district. The material obtained via the team study provides the foundation for a 3-pronged evaluative summary of intergroup conflict, cultural pluralism, and rigidity and depersonalization in the schools, thus leading into 26 recommendations for action in areas such as compilation and use of data, community involvement, ethnic balance in the schools, employment and utilization of staff, student relations, tracking and teaching practices, inservice education of staff, and multi-ethnic curriculum. An appendix contains 4 statistical tables and an excerpt from the report "Intergroup Conflict in California Secondary Schools." (BO)
