New Approaches to Bilingual Bicultural Education, No. 1: A New Philosophy of Education.
Castaneda, Alfredo; And Others
This teaching manual is the first in a series of seven (accompanied by a manual of self-assessment units) that have been designed for use in bilingual/bicultural programs. The components of the series may be used either individually or together. This manual explores the many issues concerning the responsibilities of public education to the Mexican-American child. A critical examination is made of assumptions of compensatory education. The melting pot theory, or enforced acculturation, is contrasted to cultural democracy or acculturation assistance. This view goes beyond recognition and respect to use and reinforcement of culture as an integral part of the majority culture. (Author/AM)
