Educational Challenges of Hispanics: Cultural Literature Review.
Gallenstein, Nancy L.
Educational challenges of and reasons for minority students leaving school have repeatedly been examined by researchers. This literature review includes a presentation on various historical theories that provide explanations concerning the success or failure of visible racial/ethnic minorities in United States schools. In addition, Hispanic cultural studies conducted on the elementary, middle, and high school levels by educators and anthropologists are presented. Instructional strategies and programs to engage minority students, teacher-student interaction patterns, and the role of the community and of parents in school involvement are discussed to shed light on the educational challenges faced by minority students, in particular, Hispanic students. (Contains 33 references.) (Author)
