Asian/Pacific American Education Agenda for the 1980's.
Asian/Pacific American Concerns Staff (ED), Washington, DC.; National Asian/Pacific American Education Alliance, Springfield, VA.
This program offers fourteen resolutions with corresponding strategies for improving education for Asian and Pacific Americans. These strategies are specifically directed to the Asian/Pacific American Concerns Staff and other Asian/Pacific American organizations. Issues addressed include: (1) insufficient State and Federal funding for bilingual and multicultural education; (2) the necessity for flexibility in Federal policy; (3) equal access by Asian/Pacific Americans to government decision making; (4) curriculum bias in textbooks, resource materials, and teacher training; (5) higher education support services and occupational counseling; and (6) better representation of Asian/Pacific Americans among educational administrators. The resolutions also call for more research related to Asian/Pacific American concerns, the prohibition of educational voucher plans, and the legitimization of Asian/Pacific American studies. (APM)
