State Initiatives and Activities in Foreign Languages and International Studies.
Draper, Jamie B.
A listing of state efforts in foreign language education and international studies compiled from results of a telephone and mail survey of state foreign language supervisors is presented. For those states for which information was not available from supervisors, consultants, or education officials, other sources were consulted, including commission reports, information on proposed legislation, and foreign language association newsletters. The data reported vary from state to state, but in many cases include information on proposed or existing task force initiatives and reports, professional association reports and recommendations, state law requirements, graduation and degree requirements, college entrance requirements, enrollment rates, experimental or special programs, statewide excellence goals, program development, accreditation goals and requirements, state level staff, and state proficiency examinations.
