Summary

This report summarizes responses to a survey about the effectiveness of the 1989 Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) Program in Seattle (Washington). A large majority of TBE teachers and instructional assistants (IAs), and a little more than half of the principals of schools housing bilingual programs responded. The following findings are included: (1) a majority of staff agreed on the need for a standardized, sequential curriculum whose content is the same as the regular curriculum; (2) a large majority of teachers and principals agreed that the California Achievement Test (CAT) does not adequately reflect bilingual student progress; (3) a majority of IAs agreed that they were well-prepared for and clearly understood their roles, but less than half of the teachers and principals agreed with this assessment; (4) IAs were more satisfied with inservice training than teachers; (5) a majority of respondents agreed that facilities and space for the bilingual program were adequate, and were positive about working conditions; (6) respondents were generally satisfied with the performance of program administrators; (7) a strong majority of respondents agreed on the need for summer school; (8) a majority of teachers and IAs agreed that staffing was adequate; (9) a large majority of teachers felt that they used effective teaching and class management techniques, and the majority of IAs and principals supported that belief; and (10) a majority of IAs and principals agreed that all schools should offer services for both new and regular bilingual students. The responses to the survey questionnaire are appended. (FMW)
