Spanish Academic Language Proficiency: The Case of Bilingual Education Teachers in the U.S.
Guerrero, Michael D.
Bilingual Research Journal, v21 n1 p65-84 Win 1997
Examines key educational policies and practices that limit opportunities for bilingual education teachers to obtain academic language proficiency in Spanish. Bilingual-education teacher training cannot make up for ground lost by educators who lack prior attainment of math and science Spanish-language skills. Effective Spanish-language competency testing for prospective bilingual teachers is also lacking. Contains 52 references. (CDS)
