Progress: A Report of Desegregation Trends in the States, Fall 1980
Two papers are included in this issue of "Progress." The first, by Diego Castellanos, examines school desegregation in Hispanic communities. After presenting a discussion of tri-ethnic desegregation (blacks, whites and Hispanics), the author argues for a two-pronged strategy of bilingual/bicultural instruction. He advocates that this strategy be implemented in conjunction with efforts to eliminate Hispanic isolation, and calls upon school officials to promote Hispanic support for desegregation by assuring that bilingual programs will be preserved within integrated settings. The second paper, by L. C. Schmidt, is a summary of a presentation by the author to a conference on the education of Hispanics. Politics, legislation, and the development of educational policy are discussed in the context of Hispanic education. (MK)
