Bilingual Bicultural Education in the Compton Unified School District and Its Relevance to a Multi-Ethnic Community.
Goodman, Frank M.
The Compton Bilingual Plan is a multi-cultural program designed to foster language preservation as a national resource to promote a well-educated, well-adjusted citizenry able to function effectively in two languages and in two or more cultures. The children are taught in two languages, Spanish and English, and are openly participating in trans-racial communication in a multi-cultural classroom and community. All the children, within an integrated classroom environment, are offered the opportunity to become functional bilinguals and participate in one another's culture. (Author/VM)
