A Mechanism for Increasing Participation by Minorities and Women in Advanced Study and Research in Education. Final Report.
Alejandro, Franco; Marenco, Eduardo, Jr.
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund's program to increase participation of minority and women junior faculty members in advanced study and research in education resulted in numerous accomplishments by the program's three scholars-in-residence. Dr. David Jess Leon (1979-1980) produced a major publication, "The Struggle for Access: Minority Students in a California University," reviewed social science literature on higher education, did a survey of California higher education minority assistance programs, developed research proposals, and presented his research at conferences and professional meetings. Dr. M. Susana Navarro (1980-1981) focused on research into testing and Hispanic access to higher education, produced numerous articles and position papers in both areas, made extensive contacts with education researchers and administrators, and assisted in the development and advancement of coalitions to pursue higher education issues. Dr. Ruben Espinosa (1981-1982) conducted a major study on Los Angeles Unified School District's expenditure patterns and school size, and found that the district spent 40% less on Hispanic elementary students than on white children and that most Hispanic students face ghetto school environments and substandard educational services. Appendices include resumes, summaries of Leon's and Espinosa's publications, and Navarro's statement on the status of Hispanics in higher education. (MH)
