Chicano Educational Priorities: Mindongo, Hash, or Potpourri.
Cabrera, Y. Arturo
Mixed feelings about the state of the art in education and over the proposals for the education of Mexican Americans are expressed. Unfortunately, the majority of college faculty make but few changes, and it is suggested that more change and innovation come from the public schools. Expressions of revolt against the traditional curriculum have not brought about significant change. So, the major problem continues to be the perpetuation of a rigid curriculum; consequently, school people are viewed with suspicion. Further, strong disagreement exists over specifics in Mexican American culture and Spanish language elements which may serve as a basis for curriculum change. And this is blurred by the lack of clear or at least acceptable descriptions of characteristics that have application on a larger and universal scale. General guidelines are suggested for curriculum changes for the education of Mexican American groups. (Author/NQ)
