Bilingual Education: Current Perspectives. Volume 4: Education.
Blanco, George; And Others
The Office of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Center for Applied Linguistics cooperated in a state-of-the-art study of the field of bilingual education. State-of-the-art papers were commissioned in four general areas concerning bilingual education: social science, languages and linguistics, law, and education. Each paper formed the central focus for a separate conference at which it was discussed and elaborated upon by specialists from various fields within a given discipline. This volume is the fourth in a series of four volumes that present the major papers and viewpoints of discussants. The focus of this volume is education. One major paper is presented, "The Education Perspective," by George Blanco, and the viewpoints include: "Budgeting for Bilingual Education," by Jose A. Cardenas; "Psycholinguistic Evidence," by James Cummins; "Analyzing Bilingual Education Costs," by Joseph D. Garcia; "Cross-Cultural Research," by William Hall; "Meeting the Needs," by Byron W. Hansford; and "The Importance of Testing," by Protase Woodford. (CLK)
