Report of a National Bilingual Bicultural Institute: A Relook at Tucson '66 and Beyond (Albuquerque, New Mexico, November 28-December 1, 1973).
National Education Task Force de la Raza, Albuquerque, NM.; National Education Association, Washington, DC.
The symposium, convened in 1966 at the University of Arizona (Tucson), served as a sequel to the 1965 "Tucson Survey on the Teaching of Spanish to the Spanish Speaking" and as a prologue to action. November 28-December 1, 1973 a National Bilingual Bicultural Institute was held to: (1) review the rationale, activities, and recommendations of the 1966 symposium; (2) review important activities in bilingual bicultural education since 1966; (3) demonstrate exemplary bilingual bicultural education programs which have been implemented in school settings of high Mexican American concentration; (4) review present and pending State and national bilingual bicultural education legislation and appropriations; and (5) develop new directions for bilingual bicultural education in American education for the 1970's which will lead to national legislation. Since Chicanos are the largest Spanish speaking community in the United States, the institute's emphasis was on bilingual bicultural education for Mexican American children, from preschool to college. Given in this report are: (1) condensed versions of addresses given at the institute; (2) work lab reports on State and national legislative, administrative, court, and community action; (3) brief descriptions of local and national bilingual bicultural exemplary projects; and (4) general institute recommendations.
