A Handbook on California Education for Language Minority Parents (English Version).
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
More than 900,000 California students during the 1983-84 school year used languages other than English as their primary home language. Of that number, approximately 470,000 were identified as limited in English proficiency. This handbook for language minority parents was developed to help new immigrant parents make better use of educational opportunities in the California public schools. The handbook includes information on student enrollment and attendance, basic school programs, curriculum, graduation requirements, grades, promotion, testing, transportation, bilingual education, parent involvement, year-round education, child development, transportation, and so forth, which will permit parents to provide immediate assistance to their children. It also provides information about programs such as alternative education, vocational education, continuation education, work experience education, and adult education, which may benefit not only limited English proficient (LEP) students but also parents who seek further educational opportunities in California.
