From the Paper:

"In 1967, Senator Yarborough of Texas introduced a bill in the Congress proposing to provide federal assistance to school districts specifically for LESA students. Although its scope was initially limited to Spanish-speaking students, the initiative led to the passing of a wide-ranging bill that became known as Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) or the Bilingual Education Act, which was signed into law by President Johnson in January 1968. The Act provided federal funds directly to school districts for developing special educational programs and provision of materials for students with limited English abilities, training for teachers, and parent involvement projects (ibid; Escamilla, 1989.)."
