Compact Guides to Information on Urban and Minority Education. Volume III.
Summaries of current research on aspects of urban and minority education are compiled in these fact sheets. The first report provides guidelines for counseling in a multicultural educational setting, and outlines what counselors should know about and what they can do for students of culturally different backgrounds. The second report, which examines desegregation as an equal educational opportunity strategy for Hispanics, presents a picture of poor Hispanic achievement under present schooling conditions, enumerates the disadvantages of segregated schooling for Hispanics, and presents some favorable outcomes of desegregation for Hispanic students. A third report explores issues related to the provision of bilingual education under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, discusses characteristics of bilingual education programs, and describes the effects of these programs on students. The fourth report focuses on the characteristics of high risk secondary school students, discusses skill areas that they need to develop, and examines instructional methods that have proven effective with such students. The final report examines the problems of misplacing minority students in special education classes and explores alternatives in testing and assessment to eliminate biases that have sent disproportionate numbers of minorities into such classes.
