The Brown Paper: Education and Chicanos in New Mexico, 1973-74.
Quintana, Francis, Comp.
Goals of the New Mexico Chicano Mobile Institutes were to: improve the quality and equality of education to meet the needs of Chicano students in public and private institutions of higher learning throughout the State; and prepare personnel in higher education to meet the needs of students, from low income and ethnic minority families, attending all public and private schools in the State. Persons identified as having some influence on the education of Chicanos in New Mexico were invited to participate in two 2-day institutes. Since participants had to pay for their own expenses, they were asked to participate through correspondence if unable to attend. Of the 158 persons identified, 62 did not respond, 59 corresponded by mail, and 38 actually participated. The first institute identified, defined, organized, and documented all problem areas affecting Chicanos at all educational levels. The second reviewed the problems identified in the first institute, then identified, defined, and related proven innovative solutions to the problems. Both institutes were conducted in a very successful manner. A synopsis of both institutes is given in this paper. Also included are: a list of all people responsible for education in the State; analysis of statewide testing; pupil enrollment by school district; and summaries of four Civil Rights reports pertaining to education in the Southwest.
