Three Years of Amnesty Education in California. IRCA Pre-Enrollment Appraisal Results for New Californians. Report Highlights.
Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System, San Diego, CA.
Data on the status of education for immigrant amnesty applicants in California under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) are summarized. The amnesty applicants fall into two categories: immigrants who can prove continuous U.S. residency before 1982, and "special agricultural workers" who qualify if they worked in agricultural jobs for at least 90 days between May 1985 and May 1986. The information reported includes: background on the federal law's education requirements, California IRCA education program funding, and state program goals; projected and annual enrollment by year (1987-88, 1988-89, 1989-90, and 1990-91) and by applicant category; education service provider types (adult schools, community-based organizations, and community colleges) and percentages; the functions of the state data management and reporting system; a demographic profile of students, including age, gender, distribution by geographic area, and employment patterns; student educational background and literacy; IRCA pre-enrollment appraisal procedures and results for listening and reading skills; program participation patterns; and pre- and post-program achievement test results for a subsample of participants. Data are displayed in graphs and charts, and highlights are presented in narrative form. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education) (MSE)
