Parameters of Institutional Change: Chicano Experience in Education.
Santana, Ray; And Others
During the 1960's, the Chicano movement directed considerable attention, energy, and resources toward educational change. The predominant mood was optimism and anticipation of major institutional change; the predominant tactic used was militant confrontation. Countless confrontations occurred and numerous plans and strategies for educational change were formulated during this period. These led to varying degrees of change. Composed of 2 parts, this publication examines and assesses the Chicanos' efforts to create institutional change. Case histories of Chicano experiences in attempting to create educational change are discussed in Part I. Among these are: (1) the Los Angeles Blowouts in East Los Angeles in March-April 1968; (2) the conference in Santa Barbara in April 1969 which resulted in "El Plan de Santa Barbara"; (3) Chicano Commencement which was a mass walkout of the June commencement at San Jose State College in 1968; and (4) the Bilingual/Bicultural program in Silver City, New Mexico. Part II consists of conceptual essays bearing directly on experiences described in the case histories that reflect on the cultural relevance and the idealogical, legal, and political characters of educational institutions.
