This report includes papers by two educators concerning the education of Hispanics in the United States. Jose Hernandez addresses the issues of Hispanic demographic patterns and migration and the implications of these factors for educational planning and policy. Rafael Valdivieso focuses on the Federal role in Hispanic desegregation, discussing debates over the goals and effectiveness of bilingual education, the lack of compliance with the guidelines established by the Office of Civil Rights after the Lau v. Nichols decision, and the high rate of school segregation among national origin (language minority) students. Both papers emphasize the growth in the overall population of Hispanic students and argue that present and future educational legislation and policy must take into account the needs of this minority group.
