Mexican-American Education. Special Report.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Mexican-American Affairs Unit.
The Mexican-American Affairs Unit of the U.S. Office of Education was established to plan, develop, and coordinate improved educational opportunities for Mexican-American children and adults. Staff members of the Unit conducted a field survey in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas to discuss current programs and future needs. Although the survey revealed general interest in Mexican-American education, a lack of coordination among federal, state, and local agencies was noted. The 4 major concerns voiced were early childhood education, teacher training, bilingual education, and adult and vocational education. A 5-state summary of programs and activities of benefit to Mexican-Americans is appended. (JEH)
