Guidelines for Educational Programs in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for Children Whose Dominant Language Is Not English.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
The guidelines presented in this document aim toward carrying out Pennsylvania's responsibility to educate non-English-speaking children within its borders as efficiently and satisfactorily as possible. Remarks describe the rationale for the problem and provide ideas on funding, relevant educational legislation, classifications for varying language competence, and educational objectives. Several different kinds of programs, both bilingual education and English-as-a-second-language types, are discussed. One section describes pupil personnel services such as guidance, counseling, pupil assessment, pupil records, career and curriculum planning, referral services, psychological and health services, and social work services. Community and parental involvement are considered, and concluding remarks concern staffing for bilingual programs. (VM)
