Rodriguez, Hugo (1976). Resolving Human Relations Problems, Intercultural Development Research Association Newsletter. Relationship problems can destroy an otherwise successful bilingual education program. Administrative problems of this type are difficult to identify and to work with. If the source is identified, the problem may be effectively dealt with. This paper presents a list of administrative problem sources that may cause human relation difficulties in bilingual education programs. The list may be used by administrators as an inventory in their program's process evaluation, or as a checklist to identify possible problem areas for further attention.

Chan, Kenyon S.; Tsang, Sau-Lim (1981). Overview of the Educational Progress of Chinese Americans. This review of the educational progress of Chinese Americans examines the demographic, cultural, and learning characteristics of this group with respect to the historical and current status of bilingual/bicultural program development. The Lau v. Nichols case is cited as a major influence and precedent for the development of federally mandated services related to bilingual education. This paper further suggests that the maintenance of the home language and culture is the most controversial aspect of bilingual education, and presents examples for and against multiple language learning.

Rodriguez, Armando (1968). Mexican-American Education: An Overview. Mexican American education in the Southwest has shown a rising determination on the part of educators to implement programs designed to effectively meet the educational needs of bilingual-bicultural students. The most important potential is the Bilingual Education Act, Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This Act provides the child the opportunity to learn in his mother tongue and learn English as a second language. By changing priorities in present programs, Title I and Title III ESEA funds can be used to support bilingual education programs.   [More]  Descriptors: Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Education, English (Second Language)

Mackey, William Francis (1973). The Bicultural Education Movement. The increase in world interest in bilingual/bicultural education is a result of decline of colonialism and political imperialism; the rise of new national states, minorities, and internationalism; and the democratization of education. Formerly, bilingual education was the privilege of the elite; now it is the expression of a demand for recognition by the speakers of dialects. In considering bilingual education around the world today, it is evident that there is a complex interaction between the school, the local authorities, the attitudes of the community, and the comparability of resources. The bilingual education situation in the world generally breaks down into those countries balancing between the need for development of a local language and the economic need for a world language, such as the Phillipines, Indonesia, Burma, Ceylon, Pakistan, and many of the African nations; those countries coping with the complex educational situation of many dialects and languages, such as China, Russia, India, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia; and those countries in which minority groups are attempting to establish school programs in their own languages, such as the British Isles and the United States. In other cases, bilingual education is the means of preserving the identities of constituent groups of approximately equal size and political power, such as in Switzerland and Belgium.
