Bilingualism for Texas: Education for Fraternity.
Lara-Braud, Jorge
This paper documents the racial and cultural diversity of the Southwestern United States, with emphasis on the persistence of Spanish language and culture. A historical review reveals the human realities underlying the confluence of Spanish and English in this region of the country. Four prevalent misconceptions of the effects of bilingualism are explored and corrected, and bilingual education is defined. In pointing out the need for increased bilingual education, the government role as a measure of commitment to this goal is examined. (Author/DM)
