The Education of Spanish-Speaking Children in Five Southwestern States. Bulletin, 1933, No. 11

This manuscript has been prepared after careful study and a visit into the territory concerned. There have been many Spanish speaking foreigners, largely from Mexico, in the United States in recent years. They are sufficiently numerous, however, in our five Southwestern States to constitute a rather serious school problem. Enough of the social and economic status of these people is here enumerated to serve as a background for certain educational problems which arise. The most hopeful elements in the educational situation relating to the Spanish-speaking pupils in the Southwestern States are: (1) the progress already made in devising ways of improving unsatisfactory conditions, and (2) the increasing interest on the part of school people along the following lines: Informing themselves concerning the economic and social status of the families represented and the interrelations between family status and the educational opportunities available to and taken advantage of by the children; ascertaining and analyzing separate school attendance, intelligence, educational assessment, and school progress statistics for members of this group; and meeting adverse conditions discovered. We may assume that interest along the three lines indicated will continue and will eventuate in educational and welfare programs commensurate with the great need which exists for them. A special, selected, and annotated bibliography is included. (Contains 3 tables and 45 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
