Language Education at the State Level: An Update of Activities.
McMillan, Cindy, Comp.
A national survey of state foreign language supervisors gathered information on any significant change in second language instruction in their states. Surveys from 30 states were returned. Topic areas included: (1) the impact of systemic reform during 1995; (2) federal funding for standards and reform, and whether or not second language programs would receive any of these funds; (3) actual or proposed foreign language standards and their relationship, if any, to national standards; (4) changes in traditional school day schedules, particularly through block scheduling; (5) language teacher shortages and teacher education, particularly at the elementary level; (6) major threats to foreign language education due to resource allocation, program restructuring, legislative action, de-emphasis on language instruction, or ideological reaction to reform; (7) funding through federal Foreign Language Assistance Program grants; and (8) enrollment rates and trends. Specific changes are reported by impact area and within these, by state. (MSE)
