Evaluation of the 1979-80 Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA), Bilingual Education Project.
Elliott, Gary L.; Murray, Wayne R.
This report presents results of an evaluation of the bilingual education component of the Emergency School Aid Act Basic Project implemented in 1979-80 in the Dallas (Texas) Independent School District. Findings include: (1) The bilingual proqram was not fully staffed, and many schools were only able to provide English as a Second Language instruction (rather than native language instruction) to students. (2) The program's language achievement objectives were not met though some gains in general ability were demonstrated. (3) Some, but not all, of the resource teachers performed all of the activities specified in the program design. (4) Similarly, teacher aides did not all provide the supplementary assistance specified in the proposal. (5) Most of the administrators, teachers, and aides did participate in the bilingual workshops and seminars. (6) Parent involvement in the program was high. Appended to the report is a description of the Tests of General Ability (Inter-american Series), used in program evaluation. (JCD)
