National Association for Bilingual Education

The last two issues of NABE News contain several articles of interest to ESL professionals. In the September/October 2000 issue, Stanford researchers, including Kenji Hakuta, examine possible explanations for the rise in SAT-9 scores in California given the brief time allocated for special English language development. The issue also includes a reprint of the CREDE/ERIC Digest, School/Community Partnerships—Supporting Language Minority Student Success. The theme of the November/December 2000 issue is "Serving Emerging Populations." Various articles highlight changing demographics, needs of rural school districts, and the positive and proactive responses from three school districts.

Copies are available for $5.00, including shipping. Order from:
