Bilingual Education in a Developing Pacific Area: Why? Asian Pacific American Education Occasional Papers by Robert A Underwood( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper examines the relationship between politics, economic development, nationalism, and school language policy in the Marianas and Guam. Past and present developments in language policy and various rationales in support of bilingual education programs are reviewed. The author draws from Fishman's "Language and Nationalism" and Woodward and Inglehart's "Language Conflicts and Political Community" to support his arguments that (1) language difference does not promote nationalistic conflict in and of itself; and (2) while language is not a necessary component of nationalism, it does provide a link to ethnic and cultural authenticity. It is suggested that bilingual programs have been viewed as reconciling rising nationalism in the Marianas, concern over the loss of Chamorro ethnic and cultural identity, and pressures to learn English and assimilate into a dominant English speaking culture. The report concludes with the observation that in developed Pacific areas such as Guam, the use of language in schools is evaluated far less for its educational value than for its use in defining the essence of a society that is struggling for cultural survival.

Defense Management: Proposed Lodging Policy May Lead to Improvements, but More Actions Are Required( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mthough we do not believe that travel regulations require DOD to revise its PCS lodging policy, the department does have the discretion to make the proposed change to bring consistency to the program and to reach desired management objectives. Mthough the proposed policy change would not impact the other services' overall MWR programs, it would impact the Marine Corps' MWR program. However, the Marine Corps has several options to help it compensate for potential lost MWR revenue and to preserve a financially healthy lodging operation. For this reason, if the proposed policy is adopted and the Marine Corps requests a wavier, we would support a short-term wavier to permit the Marine Corps time to evaluate implementation options. However, we do not believe that a permanent wavier is necessary, considering the reported amount of lodging earnings involved. While the Navy already separates accounting of its lodging fund from its MWR fund, it does not currently plan to create a consolidated lodging fund for both PCS and TDY lodges as seems to be suggested by OSD's May 2, 2001, report to the Congress. Clarification of the intent of the policy guidance in this area is needed. In addition, the Army's practice of charging unofficial travelers a nightly surcharge that it provides to the local installation's MWR fund violates DOD and Army regulations
