Mexican American Challenge to a Sacred Cow.
After a review of previous research, a critical review of "Comparative Values and Achievement of Mexican-American and Anglo Pupils," by Audrey J. Schwartz, and "Educational Achievement and Aspirations of Mexican-American Youth in a Metropolitan Context," by C. Wayne Gordon et al., is constructed. The objective of this paper is to extend and expand the initial challenge by the members of the Chicano minority group who attended the conference when these studies were originally presented. The critique examines and assesses researcher bias, inadequacy and inappropriateness of theoretical framework, sophistry and irrationality, inappropriateness and subjectivity of survey techniques, and interpretation of findings.
