Belding, Nancye; And Others
The objective of this study is to optimize the benefits of youth projects for Spanish-surname rural youth in the Southwest. A search of the literature published between 1965 and 1970 which is relevant to the problems of Spanish-surname rural youth in the Southwest is included. The survey population consists of Spanish-surname youth living in rural areas of the Southwest in 1963-68. The changing environment of these youth is described in terms of population trends, mobility, social and cultural environment, economic environment, and outmigration. The educational system of the rural Southwest, job opportunities, and the characteristics of the rural Spanish-surname youth are also described. Major recommendations for revisions in the rural educational system include improved teacher preparation, the use of Spanish literature, smaller student-teacher ratios, expanded counseling services, more community involvement, and additional social services.
