Valverde, Leonard A.
The Office for Advanced Research in Hispanic Education, funded from 1979 to 1983, was established to support research and to disseminate findings that focused on policy formation or policy implications for Hispanic education at all levels. During its 3 years of funding, the Office supported 16 research proposals in Texas, New Mexico, California, Arizona, and Virginia. The Office also supported two round table seminars (on bilingual education and Title VII programs) and an invitational symposium on Hispanics in higher education. The report includes a description of 15 of the funded projects, giving the title, the investigators and their affiliations, and an abstract of the project. The projects included studies of immigrant and Hispanic children in public schools, Hispanic administrators, Chicano students in higher education, college attrition, Chicano student retention and achievement, bilingual education, early childhood bilingual education, interdependent/cooperative bilingual education, school district structure and innovation, Mexican American student achievement, health and mental health needs of rural south Texas children, Hispanic females' aspirations, bilingual teacher and student language behaviors, and the impact of mandated enrollment of undocumented students. The report also includes summary information about the round table seminars and the symposium. (SB)
