Bilingualism in Puerto Rico: A History of Frustration.
Fisher, John C.
English Record, v21 n4 p19-24 Apr 1971
The implementation of English language instruction presents problems for Puerto Ricans both in Puerto Rico and in the United States, as seen in New York City. In Puerto Rico, the role of English in the schools has always been a political issue with widespread implications. Both there and in the States, the greatest problem in English instruction is the lack of well trained, qualified teachers. To alleviate this problem, the Puerto Rican Department of Public Instruction is granting aid to 425 men and women to improve the teaching of English. Several universities in the States are instituting graduate and undergraduate programs designed to prepare teachers of English as a second language. (VM)
