Towards Quality in Bilingual Education. Bilingual Education in the Integrated School.
Gonzales, Josue M.
Two related papers are presented. "Towards Quality in Bilingual Education: Some Things We Must Do," addresses nine specific areas that have been the focus of recent discussion and suggests steps for action. Principles that are basic to establishing criteria for quality bilingual education are suggested. The nine areas are: education goals, public policy, corollary reforms, funding, staffing and governance, compliance with the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Lau v. Nichols, possible conflict with desegregation, and participation criteria. In "Bilingual Education in the Integrated School," the implications of bilingualism and desegregation for each other are addressed. An emerging confluence of the two has been brought about by legal and political developments, but its success will depend upon the degree to which their common pedagological and social foundations can be demonstrated. The goals of bilingual education are discussed and related to the issues of participation, grouping, and staffing. Contains 18 references. (LB)
