National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The purpose of this conference was to generate information and an exchange of ideas among educational researchers, to discuss, through selected studies, the interface between desegregation and educational concerns of the Hispanic community, and to identify areas of research which require urgent attention and suggest the potential role of the research community in examining these priorities. The conference sessions addressed the following questions and issues: (1) What are the research issues, needs, and capabilities that need to be identified and clarified? (2) What is the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's policy related to desegregation and education concerns of the Hispanic community, and what sources are available for programs and research in this area? (3) What are the legal/educational implications of desegregation of Hispanics, and what research needs does this imply? (4) What are the perceived barriers and particular problems and needs of students whose background is Hispanic in the desegregation process? (5) What are the pros and cons of desegregation/integration for Hispanics, and what research needs are implied? (6) What could be the potential role of NIE and other federal educational research and development agencies in sponsoring research in the area of desegregation and education concerning the Hispanic community? and (7) Case studies of selected areas.
