Two-Way Bilingual Programs in the United States. 1993-1994 Supplement.
Christian, Donna; Montone, Chris
In two-way bilingual education programs (TBPs), students learn together through two languages in programs that aim to develop dual language proficiency along with academic achievement. In Christian and Mahrer (1992, 1993), profiles were completed for TBPs in operation during the 1991-1992 and 1992-1993 academic years. This supplement, an annual update, covers the 1993-1994 school year. The three volumes together provide information on programs in 176 schools in 17 states. Tabled data show that New York and California have the highest numbers of schools involved in two-way bilingual education. Nationwide, most schools with TBPs are providing instruction in Spanish and English at the elementary school level. The programs/schools that provided information on their implementation of TBPs are profiled. They are presented alphabetically in sections by states and within states are grouped by city and school district. Data provided in these profiles include the ethnic/racial breakdown of the school, the criteria for selecting and accepting students, recruitment procedures, grade level(s) of the program, grade level increases planned, program size, funding sources, and program materials available to others.
