The Effects and Implications of Culturally Pluralistic Education on the Mexican-American.
Ulibarri, Horacio
Establishing that cultural diversity may be nothing more than ecological adjustment and then examining the literature and research related to culturally pluralistic education, the author deals with Mexican American children and children from other minority groups in terms of growth and development (physical, mental, academic, and sociocultural); language acquisition and learning (theoretical linguistics, the nature of language, language acquisition, language description, semantics, syntax, phonology, contrastive linguistics, psycholinguistics, language and cognition, sociolinguistics, multilingual societies, multilingual individuals); bilingual programs and methodology; and tests and measurements. The author recommends 3 areas for basic research: (1) life-style studies, (2) sociopsychological studies, and (3) educational studies. In addition, it is suggested that a new start for the education of multicultural children utilize an organizational systems approach. One figure and a 74-item bibliography are included. (MJB)
