The Mexican-American and Higher Education.
Rodriguez, Armando
The educational picture of the Mexican American is seriously impaired by the lack of Mexican Americans in schools of higher education. The high school graduate has had his cultural values and language assailed by the dominant Anglo culture. Psychologically scarred, he is faced with other impediments to personal and educational achievement. He is confronted with weak counseling programs, inadequate study habits, culture and value conflict, lack of adequate guidance and encouragement, the isolation encountered in the educational environment, and partial rejection by his parental group, peer group, and community. The Mexican American student in higher education needs intensified counseling to ease personal conflicts and to overcome a fear of the new learning experience. He also needs guidance and direction in the transition from family orientation to self orientation. Several statistics are included. (CM)
