Title IV Language Minority Regulations: Beyond the Lau Remedies.
Ochoa, Alberto M.
Modifications to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Task Force Remedies are suggested with reference to identification of national origin minority students, assessment and educational prescription, staffing, desegregation assurance, and parent involvement. These considerations are addressed in five sections: (1) student identification; (2) program offerings (K-12); (3) staffing; (4) prevention of programmatic discriminatory practices; and (5) evaluation. The first section describes and gives examples of a home language survey, methods of identifying students, language proficiency and student achievement, and a classification of Lau Students. The second section discusses programs for various categories of students with limited English proficiency, individualized learning programs, factors triggering comprehensive bilingual programs, and special education concerns. The third section deals with instructional personnel requirements, staff development, and affirmative action. The fourth section on discriminatory practices includes communication with parents and parent involvement. Finally, evaluation is discussed in terms of educational context, content, process, and product. (AMH)
