Evaluation of Community Involvement in Curriculum Development in Bilingual Schools.
Gold, Norman C.
This paper reports on a project conducted in the Spring of 1975 which included field interviews and observations in ten bilingual education programs in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The purpose of the study was to gather data which would facilitate the preparation of a framework and an instrument for evaluating community involvement in curriculum development in bilingual schools. The paper presents a rationale for such involvement, describes barriers which must be overcome in order for such participation to take place, and suggests a framework for evaluation of that involvement. Included as Appendix B is an "Interview Guide," which is seen as a possible facilitator for community organization as well as an instrument for data collection. A bibliographic essay completes the work. (Author/AM)
