Foreign-Language Offerings and Enrollments in Public and Non-Public Secondary Schools, Fall 1968.
Kant, Julia Gibson; And Others
This study of foreign language enrollments in secondary schools quantitatively demonstrates the impact of the National Defense Education Act of 1958 on foreign language study through some 50 tables and charts. Ninth in the Modern Language Association of America (MLA) series, the report covers: (1) public secondary schools, (2) foreign languages, (3) Spanish, (4) French, (5) German, (6) Russian, (7) Italian, (8) Latin, (9) other languages, and (10) non-public secondary schools. While concentrating primarily on enrollments in fall 1968, the study presents comparative data from earlier reports, particularly the last, made in 1965. A summary table, sample questionnaire, and discussion of the organization of tables are included. (RL)
