The National Institute of Education and the Office of Education are working together to develop a national clearinghouse for bilingual education information as called for in section 742(c)(3) of Public Law 93-380, Title VII. Six Bilingual Clearinghouse Conferences have been held where federal planners met with bilingual education practitioners and administrators to discuss the concept and content of the clearinghouse. Each conference attempted to determine the needs and desires of the most likely future users of the clearinghouse. This document represents the overall synthesis and report of these conferences in San Diego, Seattle, Chicago, New York, San Antonio, and Miami. The recommendations have been organized into three sections: (1) a "Summary," which succinctly presents the national recommendations; (2) a "Composite Summary," in which the recommendations are grouped in nine broad categories (trends and perceptions, national advisory board, definition and scope, acquisition and dissemination, public relations, the clearinghouse and research, direct interpersonal assistance, financing and fees, and what can be done right now; and (3) "Conference by Conference Recommendations" which present a report of the group by group suggestions made at each conference. The appendices include a list of participants and invitees at each conference. (CFM)
