Bilingual Education in P. L. 93-380.
Office of Education (DHEW), Dallas, TX. Regional Office 6.
Based on an analysis of the Education Amendments of 1974 (P.L. 93-380), this paper provides an overview of the more than 20 different types of bilingual educational activity found in the law and raises some of the issues of management, policy, and coordination. Issues tend to cluster around interface areas in which there is inherent institutional, programmatic, or organizational stress. An analysis of the problem of developing a nationally coordinated bilingual education program suggests 5 potential areas of major stress: (1) the "continuity" issue characterized by stress between new and existing programs and products; (2) the "communication" issue resulting from expanded internal, as well as, external linkages; (3) the "cooperation" issue arising from new interface areas at the local, state, and national level; (4) the "coordination" issue involving interaction between Federal and non-Federal activity, among funded bilingual centers and clearinghouses, and with related state and local efforts; and (5) the "compliance" issue involving adherence to laws, rules, and regulations. Some unresolved questions regarding further implementation of the law are presented. The appendices include a listing of: (1) legislation amended by P.L. 93-380, (2) new acts or legislation embodied in P. L. 93-380, and (3) implications in bilingual education and for American Indian Education. (Author/NQ)
