Bilingual Education.
Rodriguez, Armando
Bilingual education is the process of instructing the child in his native language in some or all the curricular areas while he is learning English in the public school. This process prevents academic retardation due to a lack of proficiency in the English language. Bilingual education gives each student a base for success in the world of work, while preserving and enriching the cultural and human resources of a people. It is recommended that pilot programs and demonstration projects in bilingual and bicultural education initiated under Title 7 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act illustrate how other federal assistance programs could better be used to support similar educational undertakings. It is also suggested that more emphasis be placed on inservice programs in bilingual teacher education. (DA)
