Final Report on "A Study of State Programs in Bilingual Education."
Development Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
This study was designed to describe and analyze state programs in the field of bilingual education, including authorizing legislation, identification of goals and objectives, mandated or prohibited approaches or practices, and the specific state requirements for staff qualifications, training activities, materials and technology, student/teacher ratios, evaluation and planning. This final report highlights the major issues involved and presents and analyzes the statistics reported. These statistics, though unrefined, generally tend to define the "condition" of bilingual education at the state level during the 1975-1976 school year. This report contains an overall summary, a general discussion of the findings, and the study's conclusions and recommendations. Supporting this final report are four volumes. Volume I contains an overview of bilingual education in each of five extra-state jurisdictions. Volume II contains case studies of noteworthy bilingual education projects or programs identified for documentation and dissemination throughout the bilingual education community. Volume III provides an inventory of state legislation mandating, permitting, or prohibiting bilingual education as well as major bilingual education provisions, and Volume IV contains copies of the instruments used in collecting the data for this study.
