Evaluation in Bilingual Education. Desegregation and the Rights of Hispanic Students: the Los Angeles Case.
Evaluation Comment, v6 n1 Oct 1979
Two topics are discussed in this publication: evaluation needs in bilingual education, and desegregation and the rights of Hispanic students. Evaluation needs in bilingual education were identified from three sources; a review of federal and state legislation for the design and evaluation of bilingual education, including program implementation and evaluation; a literature review of bilingual education evaluation, including testing problems and design problems; and a survey of bilingual education administrators on evaluation practices and training needs. The following topics are discussed in the article on desegregation and the rights of Hispanic students: an overview of desegregation litigation in Los Angeles; linguistic needs of limited-English speaking students in Los Angeles; the conflict between a desegregation plan and provision of bilingual education programs; the establishment of a critical mass of bilingual students; availability of teachers; curricular planning and corrdination; and Anglo participation in bilingual programs.
