Hug, Marc (1975). La situation en Alsace (The Situation in Alsace), Langue Francaise.

Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Quincy. Bureau of Equal Educational Opportunity. (1986). Seeking Educational Equity for Linguistic Minority Students. In view of controversial reaction to reports of school desegregation in Massachusetts, this paper compiles several documents regarding the overall educational needs of linguistic minority students in Massachusetts. They include the following: (1) Report on Linguistic Minorities and Transitional Bilingual Education (April 1986) by acting commissioner Rhoda E. Schneider, which was approved by the state board of education; (2) an essay, "Educational Equity for Linguistic Minority Students: A Comprehensive Approach to Our Leading Civil Rights Challenge" (April 1986), prepared by Charles L. Glenn, Director of equal educational opportunity for the bureau's annual desegregation report; (3) an essay, "Bilingual Education: An Equity Perspective," by Charles Glenn, for the National Council on Bilingual Education (November 1985); and (4) an article, "Two-Way Bilingual Education," by Charles Glenn, written for "The Commonwealth" (April 1985). Topics covered include demography, responses to immigration, "new" linguistic minority students, indications of failure (e.g., basic skills assessment, the Boston Monitoring Report), and elements of a comprehensive program. The documents were compiled in hopes that Chapter 636 funds could be granted in 1986-87 to projects that help meet the educational needs and reduce the isolation of linguistic minority students.

Ruiz, Richard (1995). Language Planning Considerations in Indigenous Communities, Bilingual Research Journal. Examines federally funded bilingual education programs for American Indians and Alaska Natives from a language planning perspective. It is argued that federal programs represent an exoglossic (externally orientated) policy that can contribute to language loss. Indigenous communities need to develop endoglossic (community-orientated) policies that foster linguistic and cultural maintenance.

Carin, Arthur A. (1979). E.S.E.A. Title VII Multilingual Program, S.U.B.E., AVANTI, and HABILE. Final Report, 1978-1979. Separate evaluations of three Title VII bilingual education programs carried out in elementary and junior high schools in Brooklyn, New York, are presented in this report. The programs are S.U.B.E. (Success Under Spanish Bilingual Education); AVANTI (an approach to Italian bilingual education); and HABILE (Haitian Bilingual Education), which taught both Creole and French (as well as English) to participating students. For each program, objectives regarding instruction, curriculum, staff development, and parent involvement are described. Evaluation design and data analysis procedures are also outlined. Previous evaluation findings are reviewed and comments are offered on compliance with their recommmendations. Physical setting, materials and equipment, parent involvement, and adherence to Federal Title VII guidelines are evaluated for each of the programs. It is concluded that: (1) S.U.B.E. was a success and should be refunded in its present form; (2) AVANTI was successful, but should shift its foci to parent education regarding children's career possibilities, expanded bilingual guidance counseling, and materials development; and (3) HABILE should be refunded, but improvements in the areas of student participation, staff language usage and English competency, student instructional grouping, and curriculum development should be sought. Appended to the report are observation and evaluation forms and personal resumes of the evaluators. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Curriculum Development, Educational Objectives, Federal Programs
