BILINGUAL EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA.
GONSALVES, JULIA
CALIFORNIA EDUCATORS AT ALL LEVELS HAVE A DEEP CONCERN FOR THE EDUCATION OF THOSE CHILDREN WHO SPEAK A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH, AND THOSE EDUCATORS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING SPECIAL BILINGUAL PROGRAMS FOR THESE YOUNGSTERS. TWO RECENT DEVELOPMENTS WHICH WILL AFFECT BILINGUAL EDUCATION ARE--(1) THE PASSAGE OF THE "BILINGUAL BILL", PERMITTING THE GOVERNING BOARD OF ANY SCHOOL TO DETERMINE WHEN AND UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES INSTRUCTION MAY BE GIVEN BILINGUALLY, AND (2) A REQUEST FROM THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION FOR THE STATE CURRICULUM COMMISSION TO RECOMMEND TEXTBOOKS IN ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE FOR POSSIBLE STATE ADOPTION. SEVERAL CALIFORNIA BILINGUAL PROGRAMS ARE CITED IN THIS REPORT, EVIDENCE THAT INNOVATIVE IDEAS ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED. THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAS FURNISHED LEADERSHIP IN THE AREA OF BILINGUAL EDUCATION AND HAS BEEN DEEPLY INVOLVED IN PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO IMPROVE THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES OF MEXICAN AMERICANS. THIS REPORT WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE SOUTHWEST COUNCIL OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS, EL PASO, TEXAS, NOVEMBER 10-11, 1967. (ES)
