Manuel Justiz, a professor at the University of New Mexico, has been nominated by President Reagan to be director of the National Institute of Education, Administration sources said last week.

Mr. Justiz, who directs the Latin American programs in education at the university's college of education, was an associate director of the Teacher Corps program from 1972 to 1973. He has written extensively on vocational education for language-minority students.

If his nomination as head of the Education Department's research agency is confirmed in the Senate, Mr. Justiz will replace Edward A. Curran, who was removed from his post last June. Mr. Curran was recently nominated by the President to be deputy director of the Peace Corps.
