Reaching Each Child -- Programs for Texas Minority Students.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Within the last 10 years, attention has been directed toward discovering and solving the unique needs and problems of Texas' minority group students. This bulletin briefly describes 16 programs, in operation in school districts throughout the State, which are effectively serving these students. Selected because they are representative of the quality of education which prevails in Texas schools, each program is different in its approach. They cover such topics as bilingual education, cultural awareness, migrant education, vocational education, reading instruction, ethnic studies, child appraisal, resource centers, and teacher inservice education. Among the programs are: (1) Laredo's one classroom where Mexican American students learn to be bilingual office workers; (2) an ethnic studies program in a Bay City junior high school which begins as a 7th grade Texas history unit and culminates in a community wide ethnic fair; (3) a concerted effort by Tyler curriculum writers to supply social studies and English teachers with information about the contributions of blacks to the nation's development; (4) the provisions of alternative approaches to the entire high school education process in the Houston public schools; (5) the Ethnic Studies Program in San Angelo; and (6) the migrant education programs in Mercedes.
