At the crossroads : an inquiry into rural post offices and the communities they serve by Richard J Margolis( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many small-town citizens the post office remains an essential institution, not only as a collector and distributor of the mails but also as a focal point of sociability and intimacy, as a news center, and as a provider of special neighborhood services and counseling. In order to provide data for the Postal Rate Commission (charged with reviewing appeals from patrons of post offices which the Postal Service has decided to close or consolidate), this research paper reports the sociological implications and community effects resulting from the closing of a post office in a small rural community. Data were derived from interviews with 151 residents in 37 communities in 19 states and in all 5 U.S. Postal Regions. Conclusions focus primarily on the viability of the community whose post office may be closed. If the community shows signs of being a strong one, then the closing of its post office would cause significant, perhaps irreparable, harm. If, however, the community exists in name only, with few people supporting or being served by its post office, the closing of such a facility would have little adverse effect. Twenty-one vital signs, principally tests of the vigor of a community's relationship with its post office, are presented to assist the Postal Service in determining community viability. (Nec)

Homes of the brave : a report on migrant farmworker housing by Richard J Margolis( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on direct observation of farmworker housing, reviews of the literature on the subject, "openended" interviews with migrant workers or members of their families, and visits to some 75 camps in Texas, Florida, Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, and Colorado, this report examines the conditions of migrant housing. Part I provides a brief historical overview of the migrant experience, focusing on the uses of shelter as a bargaining chip in the agricultural labor markets, and examines the federal government's critical role in these proceedings, especially "its historic tendency to confuse the farmworkers' welfare with that of their employers." Concentrating on the housing conditions which existed in the summer of 1980, Part ii presents the migrant families' own assessments of their housing, the amount of space provided for families, the rooms they crowd into, the mattresses they sleep on, the burners they cook on, the bath-houses they shower in, the out-houses they use, and the dusty, treeless yards their children play in. The relationship between these and the migrants' notably poor health and low morale is discussed. The last section briefly examines the politics of farmworker housing as characteristically practiced in rural communities. A 30-item bibliography on migrant farmworkers concludes the report.

The losers; a report on Puerto Ricans and the public schools by Richard J Margolis( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Puerto Rican youth lag behind white and Negro students in mathematical and verbal ability and reading comprehension and, although data seem incomplete, many of them seem to drop out of school because they feel alienated in the English-speaking school and because they feel a debilitating sense of a lack of control over what happens to them. Efforts have been made to change the attitudes of teachers toward their Puerto Rican pupils (E.G. trips to Puerto Rico and seminars to discuss mutual problems), but they have been ineffective; it may be more important to staff schools with Puerto Ricans and to introduce Puerto Rican culture into curriculum and textbooks than to try to change attitudes. It has been shown that Puerto Rican youth receiving bilingual instruction can simultaneously learn the subject matter in Spanish and acquire skills in the use of English. Also, for parents to help their children, they must be involved in the schools, and liaison, possibly through bilingual mediators, must be established to permit them to express their grievances and problems.
