Title I ESEA Case Study: The Bilingual Program, Tucumcari, New Mexico.
Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Div. of Compensatory Education.
More than three-fourths of the Nation's school districts receive funds for improving opportunities for educationally deprived children in low-income areas under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Act. The Division of Compensatory Education, which administers Title I in the U.S. Office of Education, has examined a number of successful projects. These projects can be used as examples for other school districts implementing similar programs. The case studies of these examinations comprise a series which describes what is being done in specific locales and where and in what ways the Title I mission is being accomplished. In this report, the Bilingual Program at Tucumcari, New Mexico, which has been in effect since September 1969, is examined. The program attempts to improve the educational opportunity and the overall school experience for 162 educationally deprived children by developing both Spanish and English literacy skills, providing bilingual instruction in social studies and cultural enrichment, and developing positive self-image and cultural identity. The program is examined for planning, management, and implementation. The detailed budget for fiscal year 1972 and various components of the testing program completed by fall 1970 and their results are also given. (NQ)
