Current Research Issues in Minority Student Education.
Christian, Donna
As a conclusion to a symposium on issues related to diversity and American education reform in the context of Goal 3 of the National Education Goals, this paper summarizes important issues of language and culture that must be faced in the process of implementing Goal 3. One of the prerequisites for dealing effectively with these issues is an adequate foundation of research. The need for accurate information and data from all possible sources is emphasized, and the following categories are identified: program and instructional models; the needs of special populations; processes of second language learning; acquisition of literacy; influence of home and community; assessment issues; and teacher education. Contains 44 references. (LB)
