Vocational Education Needs of Hispanic Women. The Minority Women's Series.
The first half of this monograph deals with present attitudes towards Hispanic women and migrants, comparing stereotypes and facts about both groups, including population figures and other demographic data such as income level, family size, source(s) of income, maternal mortality, and morbibity rates. Self inventories on attitudes toward the groups follow each of these two sections. Highlighting pertinent aspects of the revised and extended program for vocational and bilingual education contained in the Education Ammendments of 1976, the remaining portion of the monograph is comprised of a question and answer section on the rationale underlying the concept of bilingual vocational education, an outline of fourteen components of bilingual vocational education, synopses of vocational programs in the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), the state of Wisconsin Manpower Services, interagency programs provided for in the Vocational Education Title II Ammendments of 1977. Other legislation affecting the needs of Spanish speaking persons, notably Title IX and the Supreme Court's Lau decision and subsequent establishment by the Office of Education of a five-level continuum of English language proficiency, are summarized on the concluding pages.
