Bennici, Frank J.; And Others
Two reports concerning the education of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students are presented. The Task D100 report summarizes demographic characteristics and key research issues associated with high-school-age youth, including students and dropouts, who are identifiable as language minority and LEP in the National Educational Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88). It also examines the aspirations of these students at the base year and in a follow-up survey, describes school programs and courses for this population, and describes student persistence and academic performance through high school. The Task D150 report focuses on first-grade cohort data from an earlier study and explores other data describing services available to language minority and LEP students. Special attention is given to Chapter 1 programs. (MSE)
