National Estimates of Bilingual Education Teachers.
Burnett, Robert W.
A program of research to determine the need for teachers to carry out programs of bilingual education is outlined. The first component of the program deals with the need for bilingual personnel and addresses such policy issues as eligibility for bilingual education, regional concentration of eligibles, participation of non-eligibles, and teacher-pupil ratios. The second component is concerned with the supply of qualified bilingual education teachers, and covers teacher qualification criteria and participation of potential teachers in the labor force. It is estimated that by the end of 1979 data will be available on the need for teachers which will indicate a critical shortage of available teachers. Steps in a procedure of bilingual policy decision-making are presented schematically. (JB)
