Information Resources in the Education of Ethnic Immigrants: Some Lessons from the Past.
This paper examines the development and current state of educational information resources and dissemination networks as a means of planning educational programs for ethnic minority immigrants. The national, regional and state dissemination networks are identified and discussed; the difficulties involved in the dissemination of information to ethnic minority groups are presented. Strategies are suggested for improving information availability through existing and alternative dissemination methods not only to educational planners but directly to members of ethnic groups. It is emphasized that a multicultural perspective is needed to maximize the success of any information system wishing to service the needs of ethnic immigrants. (JCD)
