The Equality of Educational Opportunity: A Bibliography of Selected References.
Cordasco, Francesco; And Others
This document is primarily a bibliography of titles selected from that vast literature spawned in the 1960s (and extending into the next deacde) which deals with the American Schools and the children of the poor; with the so called "minority child" (blacks, Puerto Ricans, Mexican-Americans, Indians, the "Appalachian Poor," ethnics, and migrants); with the surging restiveness of community involvements; the desegregation of urban schools; with multifarious educational experiments and failing innovative designs; and with the twin themes of alienation and disaffection. The bibliography's entries have been arranged under five main categories: Role of the School; Dropouts and Delinquency; Characteristics of the Disadvantaged Student; Teachers and Teacher Education; and Programs and Materials. Where appropriate, some annotation is affixed to the titles, and the register of titles is prefaced with a brief bibliographical essay which sketches the socio-economic and political contexts which made educational history an integral part of the greater societal matrix. A long essay is also provided which puts into focus the quest for the equality of educational opportunity, furnishing a framework into which the basic data have been set and the historical parameters defined; and includes a profile of the Puerto Rican community's struggle for equal education.
