Language Census Report for California Public Schools, 1988.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
California's annual language census survey for 1987-1988 contains data on the numbers and geographic distribution of limited-English-proficient (LEP), fluent-English-proficient (FEP) public school students with native languages other than English, and of bilingual staff in the public school system. Of the nearly 4 million students enrolled in California public schools during 1987-1988, more than 14.0 percent were identified as being LEP and 13.0 percent as being FEP. Students were identified in 45 primary languages. Tables display data on: (1) LEP and FEP enrollments by grade level, county, and language for 1988 and on trends in enrollment since 1984; (2) LEP students in California bilingual education programs; (3) students in migrant education programs; (4) and bilingual staff members by county, language, and classification. A world map shows the countries of origin for LEP students in cases where more than 2,000 students from that country are enrolled in California public schools. (MSE)
