Jefferson, Arthur (1980). Desegregation. [CEMREL Paper 1]. A clear and effective relationship between the State and Federal governments is needed in pursuing school desegregation. The lack of State and Federal government congruence results in a desegregation policy that emanates from judicial decrees on a district by district basis. In Michigan, inconsistencies among districts and between Federal and State policies have hampered desegregation. Areas affected by these policy difficulties include: (1) educational improvement; (2) metropolitan desegregation plans; (3) Federal funding; (4) faculty desegregation; and (5) bilingual education. Social impediments to desegregation implementation also exists. More analytical research and improved coordination and clarification of desegregation policy are needed.   [More]  Descriptors: Administrative Policy, Bilingual Education, Compliance (Legal), Court Role

Hakuta, Kenji; And Others (1986). Bilingualism and Cognitive Development: Three Perspectives and Methodological Implications. The relationship between bilingualism and cognitive development is explored as an exemplary area in which the disciplinary concerns of cognitive psychology, social psychology, and sociology occur together. A historical review of research shows that many of the apparently contradictory findings about the effects of bilingualism on mental development have stemmed from a failure to distinguish between levels of bilingualism as defined by the three different research orientations. The literature within each of the disciplines is discussed and the implications for a more rigorous definition of bilingualism are outlined, based on research undertaken in a bilingual education program in New Haven, Connecticut. Sixty-nine references are listed.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education Programs, Bilingualism, Case Studies, Cognitive Development
