Valencia, Atilano A.
Identification of 26 high priority problem areas in education which affect the lives of the Mexican-American, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and other Latin American peoples in the United States is made in this report. Examination of these areas, determined by a research task force, led to the development of 20 "state-of-the-art" papers which generated recommendations by a selected panel for further research and development. The panel's recommendations, contained in this report, concern: (1) institutional change, (2) reading programs, (3) Chicano community action, (4) use of Mexican-American paraprofessionals, (5) effects of cultural marginality on personality, (6) effects of culturally pluralistic education, (7) peer group influence, (8) deviant behavior, (9) higher education, (10) modification of teacher behavior, (11) positive and negative effects of Chicano militancy, (12) testing, (13) effects of self-image and stereotypes on learning, (14) sociolinguistics and Spanish and English language varieties in the Southwest, (15) status and effect of Headstart programs, (16) adult education, (17) variables in the learning process, (18) vocational and technical education, and (19) current retardation procedures and social implications.
