Attitudes towards bilingual education among Hispanics and a nationwide sample by Stephen Cole( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bilingual education is an issue which has been of deep concern to immigrant, particularly Hispanic, communities, but has had little visibility to the general public. No systematic surveys have been conducted either among Hispanics or the general public to find out how people feel about this issue. This report presents the results of two telephone surveys conducted on bilingual education, one of Hispanics living in New York City and Los Angeles, the other of a nationwide sample. Reported on are (1) the attitudes of Hispanics toward bilingual education; (2) a causal analysis of the attitudes of Hispanics toward bilingual education (in terms of experience with the public schools, importance placed on learning English, English-Spanish orientation, assimilationism, and demographic characteristics); (3) reasons for support of bilingual education; (4) bilingual education and evaluation of public schools; (5) the attitudes of Americans toward bilingual education; and (6) a causal analysis of the attitudes of Americans toward bilingual education (in terms of assimilationism, attitudes toward Hispanics, and general political attitudes). Data gathered during the survey are presented in 17 tables, and appendices contain a detailed discussion of methods and procedures, the questionnaires used for both surveys, and a Spanish translation of the Hispanic questionnaire.

Historical aspects of bilingualism in the United States by Sigmund Diamond( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Attitudes and policies toward bilingualism in the United States have always been affected by political considerations. Although controversy over bilingualism is political in principle, it is a particular kind of political controversy, that is, a manifestation of a new stage in the history of an even larger controversy over the meaning of citizenship. The history of doctrines of citizenship in the United States documents the conflict between citizenship--a status indicating equal and full membership in the body politic--and stratification--indicating the existence of something less than equality outside the realm of the polity. To the extent that language formally affects the process by which one may legally acquire citizenship or to the extent that an attitude toward language expresses prejudice toward the group using that language, members of the group may feel aggrieved that the equality implicit in their status as citizens is belied by the inequality of their lives. In the United States, the closeness of the relation between language and citizenship was intensified by two factors of history (1) the importance of immigration; and (2) the use of English as a major test for determining loyalty to what was seen at the particular time as American beliefs. The debate over bilingualism is, therefore, a manifestation of two larger controversies: the conflict between the equality of citizenship and the inequality of stratification, and the conflict between citizenship as full membership in the body politic and alienship as the status of those who are not or may not be admitted.

The Federal law of bilingual education by Susan Pouncey( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Title vi of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Educational Opportunities Act (eeoa) of 1974 impose an affirmative obligation on the states to rectify the language deficiencies of non-English-speaking students but do not specify a particular remedy, leaving it to State and local educational authorities to determine which programs, methods, or techniques constitute "appropriate" action. The Bilingual Education Act of 1974, by contrast, is a categorical statute, providing financial assistance in the form of direct grants to local educational agencies for the purposes of developing elementary and secondary school programs to meet the needs of limited-English-speaking school children. Until recently, the Federal courts, faced with suits challenging the legal sufficiency of existing programs under Title vi and eeoa, tended to favor bilingual education over other kinds of compensatory language programs. In keeping with the shifting mood of the country and the shifting policies of the executive branch, the courts have recently been giving the statutory language a more literal construction and have been refusing to infer Congressional intent to favor bilingual education over other kinds of "appopriate" programs. As a result, bilingual education is now viewed as a compensatory method of instruction which a school board may choose to implement in order to fulfill its Federal obligations or a court may impose on a school board which has failed to fulfill its obligations. It is not a deemed right or entitlement. (Cmg)
The organizing of parents to support bilingual education by Josh DeWind( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines efforts on the part of advocates in New York City to draw Hispanic parents into the bilingual education movement. Parent involvement in New York has included a wide variety of educational and political endeavors. Parents have participated in the activities of public educational and political organizations in ever widening arenas, starting in local schools and extending to district, city, state, and national levels. In the process, parents have made cultural adaptations to American society. Rather than fostering cultural or political separatism, these efforts to involve Hispanic parents in the bilingual education movement have contributed to their cultural and social integration. Although opponents fear that bilingual education hinders integration and will foster separatist movements, it is, in fact, the rejection of bilingual education that will result in separatism. (Cmg)
Paying the hospital in Canada by William A Glaser( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The country has about 1313 hospitals. Most are public -- i.E., Owned by charitable associations or by municipalities. Acute and speciali- zed hospitals are the public ones. The for-profit private hospitals are almost entirely nursing homes or chronic hospitals. Hospitals vary in size. Large ones exist in big cities. But canada has many small towns far from each other and easily isolated by weather, and many small hospitals are spread across the country. Most hospitals are owned by voluntary associations, particularly in the maritimes, quebec, ontario and british columbia. Canada has depended on govern- ment to develop its frontier areas. Many hospitals in the prairie provinces are owned by single municipalities or by groups of them
