Bilingualism, the Mexican American College Student, and His Community.
Lezama, Juan A.
The primary objectives of the Mexican American Project at Sacramento State College are to prepare "agents of change" through the applied social sciences, to work within the culture of the schools, to increase the opportunities for the Mexican American learner, to further the concept of involvement of the Spanish-speaking community in the education of the Mexican American learner, to help assess needs of the Mexican American child, and to develop relevant curriculums based on the language and culture of the child. This paper discusses some of the specific accomplishments and objectives of the project in terms of general bilingual education needs and problems. (Author/VM)
