Recommendation for Enhancing the Educational Process for Hispano Students in the Denver Public Schools.
Arguello, John; Garcia, John F.
The Hispano comprises the largest ethnic group in Colorado; yet a large segment of the community remains in a state of gross poverty and low educational attainment. The most prominent contributing factor is the lack of salable skills and academic preparation needed in today's highly technological society. This document addresses itself to the educational problems. The general objectives which are realistic in terms of assisting the Hispano child to compete in his present school situation and in preparing him for future occupational and social endeavors are to (1) instill the desire to become a useful, contributing member of society; (2) develop an appreciation of the Hispano culture and heritage and for the American way of life; (3) develop acceptable standards of aspiration, self-respect, good mental health, and the powers of self-expression; (4) increase his ability and proficiency in the use of the English language; (5) develop his ability to work in the typical classroom and compete with his peers; and (6) correlate English and Spanish in all areas of the curriculum where it is feasible. Specific recommendations are made in the areas of integration, use of Title I funds, curriculum, oral language, reading and other academic areas, personnel, and parental involvement. (Author/NQ)
