Communication, Administration, and Mexican-American Administrators.
Franc, Max B.
Endeavors to incorporate Mexican Americans into the administration of social action and other governmental programs are examined in this paper. As a result of exploratory work for training Chicano youths for entry-administrator positions in such agencies, 3 areas are discussed: (1) ways in which such programs can improve communication between Mexican Americans and other public administrators; (2) techniques to identify substantive communication breakdowns in such programs; and (3) training devices for improving communication skills. The importance of empirical data in assessing the effects of treatment variables for Mexican American placement in entry-administrator positions in governmental agencies, techniques to attract these youths to public service, and a variety of other minority-oriented programs are reviewed. Also discussed are (1) differences between communication and administrative variables in these programs; (2) specific ways in which minority-oriented programs are dissimilar and similar to others; (3) identification of desirable techniques for selection and operation of minority administrators; and (4) experimental designs for tracing relationships between treatment variables and programmatic and organizational accomplishment.
