Final Evaluation Report of the San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District's Bilingual Education Program, 1974-1975.
Harrison, Helene W.
The program is primarily designed to provide bilingual education for pupils, in grades K-6, with limited English-speaking ability. Due to parental requests, approximately 16 percent monolingual English-speakers have been accepted into the program. Of the 529 children enrolled in the program, 89 percent have Spanish surnames. Objectives for the Mexican American pupils are to: (1) prevent their educational retardation by instructing them in Spanish while developing their command of English; (2) enhance their understanding and cognitive development in both languages; and (3) instill a knowledge of and pride in their bicultural heritage. Objectives for Anglo pupils are to: (1) give them the opportunity to become bilingual and literate in 2 languages and (2) broaden their outlook and enhance their understanding of other peoples. Program components are: development of and revision of curriculum materials for bilingual classes, bilingual instruction in grades K-6, staff development, and parental and community involvement. This 1974-75 evaluation report deals only with the instructional component. Discussed are the results from the: Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Boehm Test of Basic Concepts, Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills, Prueba de Lectura (Spanish reading test), Bilingual Education Program Test in Social Studies and Science (given in the appendix), and Projected Self-Concept Inventory.
