Report on Community Needs Survey of the Hispanic-American Population of Elgin.
A telephone survey was undertaken of a random sample of 75 Hispanic-American family groups in Elgin, Illinois. The purpose was to learn the educational needs and characteristics of this and the large Hispanic-American group it represents in the community. Preferred courses were elicited, and the preferred method of instruction was in English with Spanish learning aids, a method used in Elgin Community College's Bilingual Access Program. Morning and evening scheduling of classes were preferred also. Only about two-thirds of the group would require financial aid, and most could provide their own transportation. The average schooling of the group was eight to nine years, most have Mexican and Puerto Rican background, and the average age was 34 years. No further analysis is given. The survey instrument, in Spanish, is appended. (MSE)
