Abstract:

Casa de la Raza, a k-12 grade school, operated from September 1971 to June 1973 as part of the Berkeley Unified School District's Experimental Schools Program. Based on the belief that using the student's home culture and language within the instructional program would foster personal growth and academic advancement, Casa used a bilingual curriculum and provided an atmosphere that reinforced the "Familia" concept. Its philosophy was that teaching Chicanos was not a job, but a movement. The teachers were committed to "carnalismo", Raza culture, language, and Casa's values. Casa served the instructional, cultural, and survival needs of about 125 Raza children. On June 13, 1973 the Berkeley Unified School District announced Casa's closing due to the Office of Civil Rights' charge that the school was in "probable non-compliance" with Title vi of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. This publication gives: (1) a chronology of the Casa de la Raza issue; (2) a program description; (3) correspondence and memoranda from the Office of Civil Rights, the Berkeley school superintendent, and legal experts; and (4) an article from the "California Law Review" which discusses the Constitution, the Civil Rights Act, and Berkeley's Experimental Schools Program.
