Positive and Negative Effects of Chicano Militancy on the Education of the Mexican American.
Gonzalez, Nancie L.
Types of organizations (e.g., conservative, militant, those furthering a specific cause, youth organizations, or social club organizations) involved in Chicano movements operating in the 5 southwestern states and other areas with large numbers of Mexican Americans are described in this paper. Such organizations as the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Alianza Hispano-Americana, the Southwest Council of La Raza, the League of United Citizens to Help Addicts, and the Chicano Welfare Rights Organization are examined in terms of the possibilities of their philosophies or activism affecting education either on a short-term or long-term basis. Additionally, the relationship between the kinds of demands made by the older Spanish-speaking activists and those of today's Chicanos is considered. It is recommended that further research be done on topics such as the various Chicano organizations, the interrelationship between Chicano militancy and other protest movements of the past and present, the implications of improved education along the lines demanded by today's Chicano activist, and how the Anglo power structure is likely to respond to the efforts of activist minority organizations. An appendix consisting of members of the Chicano Press Association, a list of 41 Chicano organizations, and a bibliography are included. (NQ)
