Data Collection Report on Language Minority Children.
Data on Maine's population of minority language children consists of three sections. The first contains summative data in tabular or graphic form on: the distribution of monolingual-English and bilingual children, including: children of limited English proficiency (LEP); distribution of languages spoken by school-aged children; current trends in refugee enrollments; language minority enrollments in public and private schools; and state department of education technical services to schools enrolling LEP children. The second part presents information on language minority children's performance on the Maine Educational Assessments in 1985-86 and 1986-87, which include grades 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, and 12. Subgroup data on natively bilingual children and those identified as LEP include performance in reading, writing, writing conventions, mathematics, science, social studies, and the humanities. The third part contains data collected for federal reporting on Maine's Title VII project sites, including Indian education at three sites, and two Portland public school sites. (MSE)
