Inventory of Bilingual Education Provisions in State Legislation. Study of State Programs in Bilingual Education, Supporting Volume III.
Development Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
A review and analysis was conducted of state programs in bilingual education for the purpose of describing authorizing legislation, identifying program goals, objectives and mandated or prohibited approaches or practices; defining program requirements for staff qualifications, training activities, materials development and technology and study/teacher ratios. The legislative review necessary to accomplish these tasks prompted the thought that it would be helpful to the bilingual education community, and those administratively involved with this community, if all the major provisions of existing state legislation supporting bilingual instruction in the Nation were contained in one volume. This supporting volume of the final report for the Study of State Programs in Bilingual Education is a result of this. For each of the 50 states plus American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and the Virgin Islands, it contains data and information relating to: (1) whether or not bilingual instruction is permited, mandated or prohibited; (2) the identity of the state's bilingual instruction authority; (3) the prime goal of the state's bilingual education program; (4) the amount of state funds appropriated for support of bilingual education during the 1975-1976 school year; and (5) the major governing conditions imposed by the state's legislative authority for the implementation of bilingual instruction.
