Bilingual Education: Quality Education for All Children. Annual Report, National Advisory Council on Bilingual Education
National Advisory Council on Bilingual Education, Washington, DC.
This is the first annual report of the National Advisory Council on Bilingual Education summarizing the condition of bilingual education in the U.S. and the administration and operation of Title VII. The Council recomends, in summary: (1) that communication among groups in bilingual-multicultural education be continuous; (2) that states be assisted in developing bilingual programs; (3) that testing for bilingual students be developed; (4) that cross-cultural orientation to a target group be recognised in bilingual programs; (5) that funding be increased; and (6) that bilingual-multicultural education be promoted as quality education for all students. The recomendations are amplified in the report with specifics of implementation and administration. A legislative statement of purpose and defination summarizes the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and subsequent amendements. The history and development of the National Advisory Council from 1974 onward is detailed, followed be the 1974 recomendations of the Council. Extensive statistics on the number of non-English-speaking children and their educational failure support the need for bilingual-multicultural programs. Federal and state programs in bilingual education are detailed, and the activities and future plans of the National Advisory Council noted. (CHK)
