The official language movement The first federal recognition of the bilingual movement was the Bilingual Education Act of 1968 (or “BEA”). This act was sponsored by Senator Ralph Yarborough (Garcia). Its purpose was to support Spanish education in conjunction to English studies. The bill, also known as Title VII, contains 37 provisions and has been updated four times since its inception. Each update tailored toward enhancing the skills that it already provides. Among these provisions is the included support of helping schools support bilingual education. This is done by way of grants which are used for staffing aid and educational resources. Many consider this act a huge step forward for both the bilingual movement and civil rights. This act and other pro-bilingual programs are not without controversy. There are a couple of organizations which have been formed solely to rally against multi-language initiatives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
