Designed as a response to concerns expressed in "A Nation At Risk," this report offers a rationale and focus for international education in the public schools. Following a preface, the bulk of the document addresses the importance of foreign language and foreign culture education to the United States' national security and economic well-being, the role of foreign language and foreign cultural instruction in elementary and secondary education, and the state of foreign language teacher training. Two additional sections outline 19 specific recommendations for action on local, state, and national levels and report conclusions. Appendices contain the National Advisory Board on International Education Programs membership and charter, and a selected bibliography. (LP)
