The Impact of National Testing on Ethnic Minorities: With Proposed Solutions.
Garcia, Peter A.
Journal of Negro Education, v55 n3 p347-57 Sum 1986

Unique qualities that ethnic minorities bring to classrooms, such as language and cultural knowledge, should be viewed as assets. More realistic criteria are necessary in order to solve the shortage of minority teachers. (Author/GC)
