Abstract

A document study was undertaken to analyze the responses of the different Illinois State Boards of Higher Education to Senate Bill 1516. This bill was passed into Public Law 84-1434 by the Illinois Legislature because of the significant complaints that were aired in various places by students regarding the lack of oral English language proficiency of their classroom instructors. This study provides information which could help to close the knowledge gap between what is being done and what is known about what is being done by the institutions to address the complaints. Included is a 12-point plan which incorporates ideas from each of the institutions. This study indicates that the boards responded fully and promptly to SB 1516.
