Bilingual-Bicultural Special Education in the Navajo Reservation--Myth or Reality?
Pages, Myrtha
The Bilingual Bicultural Act of 1968, which mandates teaching in the native language of children with limited ability in English, is not obeyed in the Navajo Reservation where the schools' teaching to normal and special education students is in English. This violates the rights of peoples with a foreign language and culture to be educated basically in their own language. For the mentally retarded, physically handicapped, and emotionally disturbed Navajos this represents a double jeopardy, as they cannot independently surmount the deprivation imposed upon them.
