Evaluation of a bilingual-bicultural education program indicates that significant progress was made in enabling all students to function equally well in both Spanish and English, in providing basic coping skills, and in developing the basis for a pluralistic society. The program included 210 kindergarten and first-grade children consisting of equal numbers of Anglo and Mexican-American children. A bilingual testing instrument was developed in English and in Spanish to assess progress. Five instructional objectives measured indicated that growth was greater for Spanish-surnamed in all categories. Recommendations suggested in-service training for teachers in teaching Spanish concepts in Spanish, hiring a Spanish model resource teacher, review of art work for the portion of the test matching men and animals to environments and review of performance objectives. A copy of the test is included in the appendix. (DJ)
