The hypotheses of this study are:
1. The value orientations of urban Spanish American majority sophomore students are more similar to those of urban Anglo sophomore students than to the value orientations of the rural Spanish American sophomore students.
2. The value orientations of the urban Spanish American majority sophomore students are more similar to those of urban Anglo sophomore students than are the value orientations of any other sample in the present study.
3. Spanish American sophomore students vary more in their value orientations than do the Anglo sophomore students.
Importance of the Study
More than ten percent of the population of the United States speaks a language other than English in the home The children must learn the language and culture of their parents . Problems develop when the first language and culture are supplemented or replaced by a second language and culture imposed by the larger society. Parents require their children to go through the first process and the school system requires them to go through the second.
