Mexican-American Education: An Overview.
Mexican American education in the Southwest has shown a rising determination on the part of educators to implement programs designed to effectively meet the educational needs of bilingual-bicultural students. The most important potential is the Bilingual Education Act, Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This Act provides the child the opportunity to learn in his mother tongue and learn English as a second language. By changing priorities in present programs, Title I and Title III ESEA funds can be used to support bilingual education programs. (CM)
