A Report of the Final Session of the National Bilingual/Bicultural Institute (Albuquerque, New Mexico, November 28-December 1, 1973).
Bernal, Elias R., Comp.
Attending the National Bilingual Bicultural Education Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 28-December 1, 1973, were 1,300 representatives from 25 states. Among the institute's objectives were: (1) to review present and pending state bilingual bicultural education legislation and appropriations; and (2) to develop new directions for bilingual bicultural education for the 1970's which will lead to national legislation. This report presents the participants' final deliberations and recommendations at the concluding general session. Topics covered are: financial support; Title I of ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act); research; evaluation; teacher training; migrant education; NIE's (National Institute for Education) philosophy and operational policy for career education; and the National Task Force de la Raza's mandate. Some recommendations are that: (1) the National Task Force de la Raza request NIE's director to freeze all top level positions until the time when the Spanish speaking people can be identified and be able to compete for said positions; (2) an institute for training parents of the bilingual community be funded and implemented; and (3) criterion reference testing be administered in the child's dominant language. The New Mexico Caucus resolutions are given. (NQ)
