Bilingual Education.
This document reports on the Bilingual Education Program established under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended in 1967. The Bilingual Education Act is specifically designed for those children who come from environments where the dominant language is not English. A significant requirement of the Bilingual Office of the Office of Education is the inclusion of a section for accountability for results in every bilingual project. It was decided to select discretionary programs such as Title VII and implement and develop evaluative procedure. Major requirements for accountability include the following: (1) Objectives must be stated in terms of desired student performance; (2) A school system must recognize its own capabilities and deficiencies and must seek to utilize appropriate technical assistance in an effort to develop and operate an effective program; and (3) All projects must provide for an independent educational accomplishment audit of the project. Program evaluation is done on a project by project basis. Individual project data emerging from first and second year projects show that concrete results are already being achieved. Of great significance is the fact that programs have reduced the number of student absences. (CK)
