Reversing the Trend of Hispanic Undereducation.
National Council of La Raza, Washington, DC.
This paper answers specific questions about present and future issues concerning the undereducation of Hispanic students. The following topics are covered: (1) the educational status of Hispanics; (2) the role of federal education programs--including Head Start, Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, Chapter 1, Pell Grants, and bilingual education programs--in the education of Hispanics; (3) what an Executive Order on Hispanic Education might achieve; and (4) how the Executive Order might help the nation as a whole. Two charts depicting the number of school years completed by Hispanics and non-Hispanics 25 years old and over, derived from 1970 and 1980 census data and from the March 1988 Current Population Survey, are included, along with a chart depicting the educational achievement of Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics in 1984.
