Hofstetter, C.H. (2004). Unpacking the Evaluation Process: A Study of Transitional Bilingual Education, Studies in Educational Evaluation. This article examines the process of an ongoing, independent evaluation of atransitional Spanish/English bilingual program housed at a large, urban school district in Northern California. The program is designed to enhance Kindergarten through Grade 5 (K-5) students' English language proficiency, as well as their English performance in academic subject areas. The article looks at how the evaluation team addressed various political, methodological, and theoretical challenges, including multiple stakeholders, small sample sizes, difficulty establishing well-defined "treatment" and "control" groups, and questionable instrumentation. Finally, we discuss how participation in a highly dynamic, interactive evaluation process prompted the school district to engage in activities and to make decisions that ultimately served both the evaluation as well as the district as a whole.   [More]  Descriptors: Grade 5, Program Effectiveness, Kindergarten, Evaluation

Drake, Glendon (1978). Ethnicity, Values, and Language Policy in the United States, NABE: The Journal for the National Association for Bilingual Education. Within the bilingual education movement there is an analysis of the situation regarding "assimilation" and "cultural pluralism" in the U.S. that is a threat to bilingual education. Many assume that a new social situation has asserted itself whereby "cultural pluralism" has become a more powerful value than "assimilation."   [More]  Descriptors: Acculturation, Bilingual Education, Cultural Pluralism, Ethnicity

Tinajero, Guadalupe; Englander, Karen (2011). Bilingual-Intercultural Education for Indigenous Children: The Case of Mexico in an Era of Globalization and Uprisings, Intercultural Education. The past 25 years have brought upheaval to the indigenous people of Mexico due to two opposing forces: modernization and globalization, on the one hand, and indigenous uprisings on the other. Suddenly, the topic of indigenous languages and education was brought into official discussions at the national level. This paper examines the tensions that emerge between the political discourses which emanate from within the indigenous communities and from the national government, and the actual implementation of educational policy models. The political-educational discourse shifted from Spanishization [castellanizacion], assimilation, and integration to bilingualism, interculturalism, and participation. We demonstrate that this shift was not a smooth transition, but rather an abrupt change that occurred in the early 1990s. Further, despite the shift to new discourses that respected indigenous languages and cultures, institutional factors have not been altered sufficiently to improve the conditions of indigenous education or their well-being in Mexico. Thus, ultimately, the new discourse of bilingualism and interculturalism in education serves to obfuscate the socio-political-economic work that must be done to truly allow the indigenous people to participate in the nation's political life.   [More]  Descriptors: Multicultural Education, Indigenous Populations, Global Approach, Foreign Countries

Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Center for Law and Education. (1975). Bilingual/Bicultural Education. Inequality in Education. Number 19, February 1975. The combined effect of the articles in this issue of "Inequality in Education" is to offer the reader a primer in bilingual/bicultural education. The articles which follow indicate that neither legislation nor court orders, correctly or incorrectly interpreted, can bring about effect change in this field on their own. What the bilingual movement needs at this point is the collective energy of advocates, parents, students, teachers, administrators, legislators, law enforcers, and other citizens. The research reported in the following articles was performed pursuant to a grant from the Office of Economic Opportunity: "Coming of Age in Bilingual/Bicultural Education: A Historical Perspective," Josue Gonzales; "Bilingual Education, Segregation, and a Third Alternative," Jose Cardenas; "Organizing for Bilingual Education: One Community's Experience," Aida Waserstein; "The Massachusetts Transitional Bilingual Education Act" Two Years After," Frederick P. Lewis; "The Massachusetts Transitional Bilingual Education Act" Problems in the Classroom and Possible Legislative Responses," Peter Roos and Emma Chavez Roos; "Training Teachers for Bilingual/Bicultural Education," Nelson Vieira; "Fox Point: The History of a Portuguses Bilingual Program," Laura Hersh Salganik; "Recent Legal Developments in Bilingual/Bicultural Education," Roger Rice.   [More]  Descriptors: Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Community Involvement, Educational History
