Nava, Hector; And Others
Results of a national study of the use of funds provided by the 1974 amendments to Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act by the state education agencies (SEAs) are presented. The study was undertaken to (1) describe and analyze SEA policies and activities regarding bilingual education, (2) describe and analyze the SEA-level management structure for the coordination of technical assistance, and (3) provide information on technical management and assistance activities the Department of Education may use to help SEA grantees assist local schools in building their capacity to provide bilingual education services to language minority students. The study involved a literature review, analysis of Title VII grant applications submitted by SEAs, and case studies of the implementation of Title VII grants in nine states. This volume presents the nine state case studies for Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, New York, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. An introductory section also compares the nine states' funding and key legislative requirements with regard to bilingual education. (MSE)
