Development of a Bilingual Task Force to Improve Education of Mexican American Students.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
It is proposed that resource task forces be developed to mobilize local California school district personnel toward more effective programs for Mexican American students. As conceived, each task force would provide in-service training for school district personnel, give classroom demonstrations, work with Mexican American communities, and assist in evaluating programs designed primarily for Mexican American children. Each task force would consist of from one to five persons and would be assigned to a specific regional area. Each task force would include persons with combined professional qualifications of bilingual ability, administrative-supervisory experience, possession of a regular teaching and/or administrative credential, curriculum development and evaluation experience, and special training in working with Spanish-speaking students. The program would be supported by State funds, with local school districts providing matching funds at a specified ratio. (VM)
