Bilingual Education in Ohio: An Overview.
Catheline, Michael
This overview of bilingual education ih Ohio includes profiles of bilingual programs in Youngstown, Toledo, Cleveland, and Athens. Current practices in these programs are considered with regard to funding, identification and assessment of students, instructional models, materials, the cultural component of instruction, parental involvement, and staff development. Information is based on funding proposals and other literature obtained from the programs, literature from the state education agency and Lau center in Columbus, interviews with program directors and teachers, and observations of classes. The purpose of the investigation was to fulfill the need for a single, statewide study of bilingual programs serving limited-English-speaking children in Ohio, and to enable bilingual educators within Ohio and in other states to examine current trends and practices in Ohio programs. The following trends are identified: (1) a focus on transitional programs versus maintenance programs; (2) new proposals for federal funding submitted by Ohio educational institutions, with an emphasis on both teacher and parent training; and (3) the use of bilingual education to serve the educational needs of Indochinese children in Ohio.
