Report on Extra-State Jurisdictions. A Study of State Programs in Bilingual Education, Supporting Volume I.
Development Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
This volume contains an overview of bilingual education in each of the five extra-state jurisdictions which the study staff visited: American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Micronesia, and the Virgin Islands. The study was concerned primarily with the impact of federal bilingual education policy on each of the territories' bilingual education programs. Local bilingual education projects, therefore, were not visited or reviewed. Brief historical sketches of the status of bilingual education in each of the five U.S. territories, including philosophy, goals, budgetary considerations, materials and curriculum development, and legislation, are included. In addition, an analysis of the impact of federal bilingual education policy is provided. (Author/CFM)
