Controversy in the Classroom: Ethnic Studies Programs.
Prichard, Nancy S.
The declining interest of the general public in ethnic minority studies and the even more alarming disinterest of educators indicates that all too many Americans have viewed the study of the culture and problems of American blacks, Indians, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans as a fad. By fighting for stable funds for ethnic studies, by becoming acquainted with the available materials for teaching, and by involving community members as resource people, educators can begin to find answers to urgent minority problems, and create, even in homogeneous communities, an awareness of our pluralistic wealth.
