Desegregation and Bilingual Education--Partners in Quality Education. Conference Proceedings (San Diego, California, April 2-3, 1981).
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Adult Education.
This booklet presents the proceedings of a conference on the relationship between bilingual education and desegregation in California. The topics covered by the speakers at the general session were: (1) Desegregation and Bilingual Education: A National Perspective; (2) Legal Requirements Related to Desegregation and Bilingual Education; (3) Role of State Leadership in Achieving Partnership Between Desegregation and Bilingual Education; (4) Assistance Available to Local Educational Agencies; and (5) Citizens Who Can Function Effectively. These speeches were followed by six work sessions. The first gave four minority viewpoints on the problem of desegregation and bilingual education in the participants' individual communities. The second was on how to build a support system for bilingual education in an integrated school system, focusing on case study examples and emphasizing the need for status equalization between students with different ethnic and language backgrounds. The third session was on the observations of one speaker who had toured the country examining different desegregation and language assistance programs. Three examples are given of programs the speaker found effective. In the fourth session the speaker discusses what California children are entitled to and what they receive in terms of equal access to equal education. The fifth session concerns the factors that positively and negatively affect desegregation and bilingual education programs. The sixth concerns convincing parents, principals and the community of the value of an integrated education. (CG)
