Esquibel, Antonio; Casso, Henry J.
Participating in the "NIE/National Education Task Force de la Raza Symposium" were 57 of the nation's top Chicano educators. During the Symposium's 2 days, these Chicano educators interacted with 5 National Institute of Education (NIE) staff members. Objectives of the Symposium included: (1) to review NIE's 1975-76 Multicultural Agenda; (2) to review previous input conference reports; (3) to identify Chicano funded projects; (4) to seek commitments from NIE; and (5) to improve a rapidly deteriorating relationship between NIE and the Chicano community. Symposium activities consisted of large group presentations and interaction sessions, as well as small groupwork sessions. The participants had and took the latitude of changing the proposed agenda. Recommendations and action plans were formulated by the participants in the areas of: (1) a Collegium of Chicano Scholars; (2) a R & D Center for Chicano education; (3) curriculum; (4) linguistics; (5) psychological testing; (6) sociocultural implications; (7) NIE's policy, governance and personnel; (8) technology and Chicano education; and (9) educational finance as it effects equal educational opportunities for Chicanos. This report, based on the information generated during the Symposium, presents a historical review of the Symposium's development, objectives, activities, and participants' recommendations.
