Seventeen recommendations by the Education Task Force for the improvement of education for the Spanish speaking are given. These recommendations were made to the President and to departments which provide programs and services for the Spanish speaking. The recommendations pertain to funding applications, job specifications, teacher education, supplemental and supporting services, special programs, career education, elementary and secondary education, adult education, the needs of higher education, and community and junior colleges. Two of the recommendations are to: (1) ensure participation of Spanish speaking individuals in development of guidelines for programs which affect the educational attainment of their communities and (2) intensify the efforts of the Commission on Civil Rights to insure equal educational opportunities for the Spanish speaking. The report also discusses the status of Federal programs, commenting on: the lack of specific goals and objectives; the lack of Spanish speaking in leadership positions; rules and regulations; proposal requests; panels; and prime contractors for Federal government operations.
