Britton, Laurel B.
California State University Bakersfield (CSUB) is a major and growing supplier of new teachers for Kern County, California. A program was developed to help new teachers, most of whom are not Hispanic, understand the 45% Hispanic school population in Kern County. It is important for teachers to know and understand what they can of the similarities and differences between Mexican and U.S. culture. This paper, which outlines a program for developing teacher knowledge, explains how the two countries developed, how the two cultures compare today, and why teachers need to know. It discusses the differences between the Mexican and U.S. education systems. (Contains 12 references.) (BT)
