Effective Schooling for Language Minority Students: Research and Practice Related to the Establishment and Maintenance of Effective Bilingual Education Programs.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Equal Educational Opportunities.
The basic premise of this handbook is that effective bilingual programs can occur only within a school context that is itself effective. A foreword argues that: (1) bilingual education programs must be better integrated into the mainstream of local school district programs, and (2) limited-English proficient (LEP) students should be assigned to more effective schools. The handbook is divided into three main sections. Section 1 outlines effective school characteristics identified by research studies. Section 2 relates the findings of those studies to those schools that have, or are planning to have, a bilingual education program. Section 3 describes how school personnel working at different levels can contribute to the building of local capacity for and commitment to the delivery of bilingual education within effective schools by providing specific program suggestions. References are included. (KH)
