Conference Proceedings, the Education of Hispanics: "Issues for the 80's" (San Francisco, CA, January 15-18, 1980).
Martinez, Jesus "Metro", Ed.; Payan, Rose Marie, Ed.
The conference on the education of Hispanics was one of five regional conferences sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education in conjuction with regional offices of education. Conference participants attempted to analyze the federal government's commitment to establishing and implementing equal educational opportunities for Hispanic students, and to identify steps and make recommendations to give form and substance to that commitment. They also attempted to encourage the federal government to solve certain educational problems through the redirection of existing resources towards more effective uses. Participants specifically focused on the current status of the education of Hispanics in the areas of the census, politics, employment, the media, and finance, and made numerous recommendations for federal, state, and local action in all five areas of focus. Among the speakers were: Dr. Lorenza Calvillo Schmidt, California State Board of Education; Dr. Rene Cardenas, Bilingual Children's Television; Dr. Joseph O. Garcia, University of New Mexico; Ruben W. Espinosa, California Finance Reform Project; Hermilio Gloria, Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; and Ester Estrada, Community Education and Activation Program. (Author/SB)
