Conference Report on "Aqui Se Habla Espanol:" A Conference on the Role of Educational Institutions in Solving Problems Related to the Identity, Status and Future of Spanish-Speaking Peoples of the United States.
Stabb, Martin S.; And Others
This conference sought to bring to the attention of a broad audience of educators the problems facing Spanish-speakers in this country. The speakers, including Congressman Herman Badillo of New York, all agreed that not enough was being done to assist the person of Spanish background in adapting to a new and foreign culture, and presented specific examples of problems which arise in this clash between two cultures. The conference concluded that much more had to be done to aid the Spanish-speaking person, especially in the field of bilingual education. The appendixes, which amount to almost half the report, provide a roster of participants, a list of Puerto Rican Studies Programs in the Delaware Valley, a statewide design for bilingual education, and a selected bibliography.
