Obstacles in the Administration of Bilingual Programs.
Estupinian, Rafael
Legislation in the State of California has mandated bilingual programs. They must be included by administrators developing mainstream curricula for California schools. Not all program administrators have complied with this legislation. Legal requirements for bilingual programs have raised philosophical, legal and teacher morale problems for administrators. And, even though the laws mandate strict enforcement, program management is defined within the law and does not include a bilingual program administrator. In addition, while the "process" is mandated by law, "products" are not identified so this leads to problems with program/student evaluations. It can be concluded that program administrators must begin to question and discuss formats for the new legislation related to bilingual education. (Author/EB)
