Overview of the LAU Center Technical Assistance Process and the Office for Civil Rights Task Force Remedies: Phase 1 Manual.
Mazon, M. Reyes
This manual, first in a series dealing with the Lau Center technical assistance approach, is designed to assist school districts in their efforts to develop an educational master plan to meet Title VI (1964 Civil Rights Act) compliance guidelines. The manual summarizes the legislation, judicial decisions, and the Task Force Remedies which have given birth to bilingual education programs. The major portion of the guide describes the Lau General Assistance Centers, the function of which is to solidify coordination of bilingual programs throughout the country. Following this mandate, the following are provided here: (1) a definition of bilingual-bicultural education; (2) a method by which school districts can determine if a need for such a program exists in their jurisdiction; (3) suggestions for the kinds of programs and their emphases at the elementary and secondary levels; (4) a discussion of the CHCALT (Community, Home Cultural Awareness and Language Training) Model and its implications for teacher training; and (5) suggestions for the evaluation of such programs.
