The How, What, Where, When and Why of Bilingual Education: A Concise and Objective Guide for School District Planning.
Alexander, David; Nava, Alfonso
This book's purpose is to satisfy a perceived need for a straightforward, non-academic, non-bureaucratically worded guide to bilingual education planning and to provide objective information on compliance procedures and federal and state funding opportunities to school district policy planners, whether they be administrators, teachers, or parents. The guide is designed to fill a gap in the literature that has arisen with the passage of "Lau vs. Nichols" and with the establishment of rigorous enforcement procedures by the (HEW) Office For Civil Rights. It is hoped that the book will help clarify issues, suggest strategies for interacting with state and federal bureaucracies, present alternatives, and suggest additional resources. Each of the book's seven sections explains the public policy issues and answers the most commonly asked questions. The sections are: Lau Centers (Technical Assistance Units); the "Lau vs. Nichols" Supreme Court decision; letter of non-compliance; California state laws and advisory opinions; task force findings; compliance timelines; and funding opportunities for bilingual education programs.
