This four-part study of the educational concerns of ethnic minority groups in the United States by the National Education Association (NEA) comprises the following parts: (1) American Indian/Alaskan Native Concerns; (2) Asian and Pacific Islander Concerns; (3) Black Concerns; and (4) Hispanic Concerns. Goals are the following: (1) specify the educational needs of minority youth, families, and communities; (2) assess how well the schools are meeting those needs; and (3) determine how the NEA can support excellence in education for minority students. Data were gathered from site visits to a wide variety of schools and programs, and from the testimony of representatives of minority group organizations, federal and state agencies, parents, researchers, minority group educators, and educators of minority group children. Historical overviews discuss the role of the Federal Government, state governments, and the NEA in the education of each minority group. Recommendations for NEA policy in the following areas are outlined: (1) students; (2) curriculum and teaching; (3) teacher/school personnel; (4) parents/family/community; (5) employment; (6) collaboration/coalition building; (7) legislation/policy; and (8) leadership training. Some reports include tables and graphs of statistical data, lists of references, and bibliographies. Lists of site visits and witnesses are appended to each report. (FMW)
