Colloquy of Asian Americans: A Report.
Child Development Associate Consortium, Inc., Washington, DC.
This Child Development Associate (CDA) Consortium report describes the issues, recommendations, and papers discussed at the 1975 Asian American Colloquy. There were three major purposes for this colloquy: to provide selected Asian Americans with information on the philosophy and goals of CDA, to provide an opportunity for CDA and its constituents to learn about an ignored minority group, and to obtain reactions from Asian Americans to the CDA concept. It was stressed by the panel of seven participants that they were not representative of several major groups of Asian American and Pacific Island people and that their recommenoations must be viewed as tentative for that reason. Topics of the seven papers submitted by the panelists are: (1) the effects of residential patterns of Asian Americans on the availability and utilization of child care centers; (2) problems of bilinguality and monolinguality; (3) early childhood education in the Asian community; (4) Asian Americans and Pacific Island Peoples; (5) early history of Asian Americans, 1850 to 1965; (6) role models for Asian American children; and (7) the portrayal of Asian Americans in the mass media. Appendices include graphs showing trends in the educational and occupational status and changes in income of five nonwhite racial groups in the state of Washington. (GO)
