A description of conclusions reached at a seminar on the cost of bilingual education held at The RAND Corporation in February 1980. Needs for cost information at the federal level and adequacy of information currently available were stressed. Participants included those knowledgeable about bilingual education or the cost of education or both. They determined that current information is inadequate for federal level decisionmaking and designed a research program to obtain needed information. Seminar findings are presented in the general context of cost analysis.
