Cultural influences and reflective practice: A Chicano perspective
This review of research examines improving educational curriculum through reflective practice influenced by minority culture. Examples of Chicano and indigenous culture are cited. The implications of a poorly educated and growing minority group population indicate the need for reflective awareness in curriculum and challenges the established policies imposed by the majority culture. Reflective qualitative research, and holistic education is perceived to be a viable solution to the inadequate curriculum imposed upon minority culture.
