Summary

A survey of 83.5 percent of the school districts of California shows that in 1965 (the year that foreign language study was made mandatory in the sixth grade) enrollments in elementary school (k-8) were 573,355, compared with 187,294 in 1961, though fewer students were studying a foreign language in grades k-4 than in 1961. The enrollments in secondary schools increased 9.9 percent over the previous year. Spanish continues to be more in demand than french or German, and the classical languages are offered in fewer schools than formerly. Some sixth-grade pupils meet the state's foreign language requirement through enrollment in private courses, and the number of exempted students may increase as the law is extended to the seventh and eighth grades. The availability of laboratories is on the increase in secondary schools, and television or other programed instruction which may supplement secondary-level teaching is used partially or totally for many elementary school courses. Secondary school foreign language teachers generally have had a foreign language major or minor and training in laboratory use. In elementary schools, sometimes visiting specialists or, at the other extreme, the regular teachers with little or no foreign language training give the instruction. This report includes statistical tables. It is also available from the office of foreign language programs, California state Department of Education, 721 capitol mall, Sacramento 95814. (gj)
