Chicano Community Action Efforts at the Local Level and Their Effects on Promoting Educational Change for Mexican-Americans. A Research Paper.
Fierro, Leonard
The purpose of this paper is to review the literature and research that identify efforts on behalf of the Chicano community to effect change. Major emphasis is on change that deals with education of Chicano youth. The review of literature and research indicates 3 distinct divisions in organizational activity. Prior to 1940, Chicano organizations were of a passive form. From 1940 to 1960, organizations took positive steps, but with patience and restraint. During the 1960's, organizations took a more militant approach to solving problems through community action. The paper points up a need to gather and compile that which is written on Chicano community action efforts, a need to make literature and research available to scholar and layman alike, a need to sponsor and/or engage in needed research projects, and a need for funds to implement suitable programs.
