ESEA Title VII Rafael Cordero Bilingual School Program. Community School District 4. Final Evaluation Report, 1979-80.
Lee, Mae T.; And Others
During the 1979-1980 school year, the Rafael Cordero Bilingual School (RCBS) operated in a New York City junior high school whose student body was composed of approximately 80 percent Spanish-dominant and 20 percent English-dominant students. The educational program of RCBS was comprised of five components: (1) bilingual instruction in all school subject areas; (2) staff development; (3) curriculum development; (4) parent education and participation; and (5) guidance. RCBS also ran a bilingual arts program and a career awareness project. The program was evaluated through data derived from standardized tests of student achievement in English and Spanish reading and mathematics and an attitude scale. Findings indicated that the program goals in academic areas were attained. No significant change in student attitudes toward achievement motivation were found. Tables of data are included. The bilingual attitude measure is appended. (MK)
