PRINCETON UNIVERSITY CONFERENCE ON FOREIGN LANGUAGES AND AREA STUDIES IN THE UNITED STATES--A GUIDE FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE PROGRAMS, DECEMBER 17-18, 1965.
BERGER, MORROE
PARTICIPANTS AT A CONFERENCE HELD DECEMBER 17-18, 1965 REACHED THE CONCLUSION THAT TODAY'S COLLEGES AND HIGH SCHOOLS HAD ONLY REALIZED A SMALL PROPORTION OF THE POSSIBLE EDUCATIONAL POTENTIAL OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES AND AREA STUDIES. IT WAS BELIEVED THAT HIGH QUALITY PROGRAMS MUST BE EMPHASIZED, IF NECESSARY OF LIMITED SCOPE, RATHER THAN PROGRAMS OF BROAD COVERAGE WITH LOWER QUALITY. THE CREATION OF A NATIONWIDE NETWORK OF COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS WAS MENTIONED AS A POSSIBILITY. CONFEREES RECOMMENDED THAT BOTH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THE FOUNDATIONS SUPPORT THE TRAINING OF TEACHERS FOR THESE PROGRAMS, AND THAT VISITING FOREIGNERS HELP IN AROUSING STUDENT INTEREST IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES IN COLLEGES AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
