Jaramillo, Maria Clara (2004). The Importance of Negotiation for Policy Dialogue: Latin American Training Experiences, Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education. Over the past several decades, Latin American countries have supported processes of bringing public policy decisions on education closer to the people concerned. Participation at all levels of decision-making processes has generally been highly valued. Nonetheless, these decentralization efforts came about without governments taking the necessary steps to prepare educational policy-makers to face this enormous challenge. In the context of the "Programa de Actualizacion de Formadores en Gestion y Politica Educativa" (Refresher Course for Educational Policy and Administration Instructors), the regional office of the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP/UNESCO) in Buenos Aires finds that those "missing steps" include adequate training in the concept of competencies. Such training allows policy-makers to interact more effectively with increasing numbers of stakeholders. One of the identified competencies is negotiation. The first section of this article explains the reasons why IIEP/UNESCO-Buenos Aires took this direction. The second section addresses the theoretical and pedagogical approaches in the new and fast-growing field of conflict management in general, and negotiation in particular. The final section "tells the story" of the context and pedagogical scheme of the negotiation module produced within the framework of the IIEP/UNESCO-Buenos Aires project, and developed and tested in the "Programa de Formacion en Educacion Intercultural Bilingue para los paises andinos" (Andean Countries' Programme for Bilingual Intercultural Education) (PROEIB-Andes), in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and the University of Panama, Panama City, respectively. Teaching and learning experiences from both processes definitely shed light on the practice and theoretical underpinnings of this promising field of negotiation and consensus building in the public sphere.   [More]  Descriptors: Foreign Countries, Latin Americans, Refresher Courses, Conflict Resolution

Obi, Sunday O.; Obiakor, Festus E.; Algozzine, Bob (1999). Empowering Culturally Diverse Exceptional Learners in the 21st Century: Imperatives for U.S. Educators. This article examines issues in the education of culturally different students in the nation's schools. The first section examines factors underlying the future education of this population including demographic increases in numbers of culturally diverse students in the schools, historic discrimination against these groups, and under-representation or over-representation of some ethnic minorities in certain special education categories. The second section addresses multidimensional needs of culturally diverse exceptional learners such as nonbiased assessment, bilingual education, and direct intervention to reduce prejudice. The last section suggests ways to enhance empowerment possibilities for culturally diverse exceptional learners. Educators are urged to: (1) understand fundamentals of general and special education; (2) shift assessment and instructional paradigms, and (3) put practical perspectives on learned concepts.

Keller, Gary D. (1982). Integrating Language Assessment with Teaching Performance in Subject Areas. The issue discussed in this paper is how to test bilingual education teachers in order to be sure that they can teach bilingually in subject areas such as mathematics, science, or social studies. Four aspects of the question are discussed with reference to Spanish/English bilingual education, with the understanding that most questions raised are pertinent to most of the other languages encompassed within the bilingual education movement. The four aspects are: (1) a discussion of the issue of the appropriate language variety or register for assessment of the bilingual subject area teacher, including consideration of "world standard Spanish" and the varieties of Spanish characteristic of different parts of the United States; (2) a review of issues dealing with test formats for assessing the subject area teacher, especially the debate over natural communication versus linguistic manipulation tasks; (3) an introduction to the ideal qualities that an assessment instrument should have; and (4) the problem of vocabulary which in much of the content areas has been borrowed from English into Spanish and has been translated in a variety of ways by different speakers. It is concluded that the language register problem and the connected lexical problem in Spanish are not yet resolved.

Aspira, Inc., New York, NY. (1979). Trends in Segregation of Hispanic Students in Major School Districts Having Large Hispanic Enrollment. Ethnographic Case Studies, Volume II. Final Report. School desegregation did not lead to greater understanding of the Hispanic community by white educational personnel in two school districts analyzed to document the desegregation process and the impact of school desegregation on the Hispanic community. Each district was in a white-controlled, tri-ethnic community in its second year of successful implementation of court ordered school integration, and had an enrollment of from 20,000 to 150,000, of which 15% to 25% was Hispanic and not more than 30% was black. One district was in the East and the other in the West. Data came from participant observation, interviews, literature reviews, census reports, and city planning studies. In both districts, the full implementation of desegregation coincided with a loss in white enrollment and was soon followed by increased racial cleavage and conflict. Hispanic students were less likely to be in a supportive learning environment after desegregation. Court ordered plans sometimes curtailed specially targeted minority programs such as bilingual education programs and many Hispanics perceived desegregation to be detrimental to bilingual education. Desegregation plans should adhere to state and federal guidelines for bilingual education and should distinguish the needs of racial minorities on an individual basis. Further research is recommended. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Community Involvement, Court Litigation, Desegregation Effects

Lang, Paul (1995). The English Language Debate. One Nation, One Language? Multicultural Issues. This book for young readers explores the controversy surrounding the use of languages other than English in education and social settings in the United States. Supporters of the "Official English," or "U.S. English," movement believe that the government and schools should do anything they can to get all Americans to use English at school, at work, and in other public places. Opponents believe that while English is important, other languages have their places in the United States also, and that lawmakers and teachers should encourage recent arrivals to America to keep their native language while they learn English. The case studies of Joe Bernal, legislator and educator, and a proponent of bilingual education, and Linda Chavez, political activist and proponent of English as the tie that binds the nation, illustrate the language controversy. This book explores why the controversy has become so heated and how recent immigrants have coped with the problems of language, cultural heritage, and adjustment to American society. In addition to the debate over the role of bilingual education, there is debate over how bilingual education should be conducted. Research is necessary to determine what works best, and to assure equal education for language minority students. Nine resource organizations are listed, and 33 sources are listed for further reading. Descriptors: Acculturation, Bilingual Education, Bilingualism, Childrens Literature

de Jong, Ester Johanna (1996). Integration: What Does It Mean for Language Minority Students?. A study in five schools investigated issues in the integration of language-minority students from bilingual education classes and native English-speaking students in academic subject area classes. Participating teachers, six grade-level teachers and six bilingual teachers, the latter selected for their experience with transitional bilingual education, were interviewed four times and observed in class once a week over 2-4 months. Together they represented five integration approaches, four based on existing transitional bilingual education (TBE) and one a two-way bilingual program. The TBE-based approaches included: (1) two self-contained classrooms (one bilingual, one monolingual) with movement between classrooms for academic instruction; (2) two self-contained classrooms with movement between classes for academic subjects and a second-language component; (3) team-teaching (bilingual and monolingual) of students physically in the same classroom, with the second language used as a support language by the bilingual teacher; and (4) team-teaching in one classroom with a second language instruction component. A variety of grade levels and languages are represented in the six classrooms. Each situation is examined, and characteristics of an integrated school are derived from the six situations.

Houston Independent School District, TX. Dept. of Research and Evaluation. (1996). Title VII Enhancement Project for Compartiendo Culturas/Sharing Cultures 1995-96. Research Report on Educational Programs. Compartiendo Culturas/Sharing Cultures, a Title VII Two-Way Developmental Bilingual Education Program at the Gary L. Herod Elementary School in the Houston Independent School District (Texas) was designed to end the isolation typically experienced by language minority students in traditional bilingual education and to provide language majority students the opportunity to acquire proficiency in a second language. An Enhancement Program was developed to extend the program to prekindergarten students. The enhancement served a class of 22 students identified as limited English proficient by providing a family-centered community-based integrated program. Goals were to improve the language development, preliteracy development, and affective development of the students, to empower the parents to see themselves as the primary educators of their children, and to provide a comprehensive staff development component that focused on early childhood bilingual education. Evaluation of the program focused on the language and affective development of the students and evaluation of the staff development and parent participation components. Results from pretests and posttests with a developmental checklist and a language survey indicated that the program succeeded in preparing these language minority students for kindergarten. Parent involvement and staff development components were also rated successful. (Contains 2 figures, 6 tables, and 27 references.)
