Glimpses of Innovation: Efforts To Increase Chicano/Latino Teachers in the Southwest.
Castro, Raymond E.; Ingle, Yolanda R.
This volume presents the results of an effort at the Tomas Rivera Center in Claremont (California) to determine what is being done in the southwestern United States to produce more Latino and other minority teachers, including descriptions of 31 programs currently implemented at colleges and universities. The first section describes the changes in demographics in the southwest in the population in general and in the teaching force, noting the decline in minority teachers and providing a set of conclusions derived from a review of teacher training programs serving a high proportion of Latinos. Section 2 summarizes the findings on the 31 programs in the areas of recruitment and retention with a note on cross-institutional and collaborative approaches. Section 3 presents the 31 project descriptions alphabetically according to the sponsoring organization and covering the purpose; a program description; any partnership relations; a progress report; and the name, address, and telephone number of the project director for each. Two appendixes contain a listing of program sponsors by state, and programs charted by project areas of student support. (24 references) (JB)
