A Comparative Study of Differences in Perception of Mexican American Students Between Anglo and Mexican American Secondary School Teachers in Dona Ana County (New Mexico).
Baca, Joseph Donald
The purpose of this study was to determine whether attitudes toward Mexican American students were associated with the ethnicity, age, and teaching experience of secondary school teachers in Dona Ana County, New Mexico. A 50 item cultural awareness questionnaire was used with a sample of 112 participants. The 6 significant factors studied were achievement, time orientation, acculturation, religiosity, family identification, and economic influences. The results of the study indicate a possible need to sensitize teachers of "culturally different" children. The study was concluded by a discussion of implications for the state legislature, the State Department of Education, local school boards, teachers, administrators, and teacher-training institutions. Also included were recommendations for the various educational agencies. (PS)
