A Look at Minority Education Today with Implications for the Teaching of English.
Garcia, Joseph J.
American education must develop a system for promoting understanding among and with minority cultures. Curriculums should be designed which add relevancy to the education of minority groups and abandon the traditional ideas of Americanization which call for, among other things, the foreigner to become a good speaker of English. English-as-a-second-language programs have helped to develop a kind of mutual respect for foreign and American cultures. Bilingualism is making negative contributions to the American educational scene. These negative aspects should be taken into consideration when developing curriculums which will incorporate minority recognition while operating within the English language framework. (VM)
