Education Programs for Puerto Rican Students [Jersey City Public Schools].
Cordasco, Francesco; Bucchioni, Eugene
This report has a descriptive and evaluative delineation of those programs which have been (or are being) developed for Puerto Rican students in the public schools of Jersey City. The data of the report have been gathered in those schools with large Puerto Rican constituencies, and have been cast in the perspectives afforded by discussions with administrators, teachers, and students. What has evolved has been carefully measured in a multiplicity of dialogues with Puerto Rican parents whose aspirations for their children must remain the essential touchstone for all assessments, in the final analysis, in an area of such crucial concern. Some programs in operation in the Jersey City Public School for Spanish speaking pupils are as follows: teachers who specialize in "English as a Second Language Program" have been assigned to 16 elementary schools. One school has the "New Jersey Bilingual Education Program," funded under Title VII of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act. It consists of four bilingual teachers, and "English as a Second Language" teacher, a "Spanish as a Second Language" teacher, and a community liaison officer. Another school has a Bilingual Program under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act. Six bilingual teachers are assigned to the program.
