Now these programs include seminars for teachers on the cultural and behavioral differences of their students. "Initially bilingual education meant finding teachers to teach a child in his native tongue, but the population is changing too fast; we can barely keep up with that," said Dr. Esther Eisenhower, a member of the National Advisory Council for Bilingual Education. "We now understand how important it is for teachers to be able to read the behavior dictated by their students' background — language has become almost secondary." To provide resources to school districts with culturally diverse student populations, there are 16 multifunctional centers currently funded under Title VII, which offers training and technical assistance to local school districts. At one such center, at Hunter College in Manhattan, Dr. Joseph Woo, a native of Hong Kong, leads workshops for teachers of Asian students, focusing on differences in learning styles and behavior. "Most often teachers want to know what it means when an Asian child sits silently and does not respond," Woo said. "In some Asian cultures, emotional privacy is very important. In many family settings in Hong Kong, for instance, it is the only kind of privacy there is — physical privacy is nearly nonexistent. A well- meaning teacher who asks her students to share their feelings may be putting the Asian child under a great deal of stress." Even when a teacher asks a child whether he understands a concept or an instruction, cultural differences may lead to the wrong response. "The Asian child will answer yes because they don't want the teacher to feel like a failure and therefore lose face, "Woo said. Teachers must not only try to understand the behavior of their students, but also must take into account the method of the students' previous schooling. "In some countries children learn by rote," said Evelyn Rivera, who leads teacher-training seminars in District 10 in the Bronx under Title VH. "In the United States, most school systems prefer to have children learn through discovery. Some children have to learn how to learn all over again." For the foreign-born child who has had no formal schooling, there are more complex problems. "What grade do you put that student in?" asked Olga Garcia Harper, a program specialist at the Department of Education. "That child does not have the most rudimentary academic survival skills. Yet, we can't put a 14-year-old in a first-grade classroom." At the Office of Bilingual Education in Washington, professionals are working to answer questions like those raised by Harper. "I'm not pleased with what we have done in this field so far," said Carol Whitten, director of the office. "We're studying all of these very complex and serious issues related to bilingual education. We don't yet have answers, but certainly we have to head in the direction of increased teacher training." Just as there are challenges to the teacher and the foreign-born student in a classroom where many cultures are represented, there are challenges to classmates as well. At South Boston High School, the diverse student body —18 percent of the students are Hispanic, 31 percent white, 38 percent black, 12 percent Asian and 1 percent American Indian — "gets along well, but everyone is still learning," said Jerome Winniger, the principal.
