A Review of the Effectiveness of Bilingual Programs with Limited-English-Speaking Children.
Martinez, Christine R.
A review of literature concerning the effectiveness of bilingual education programs consists of three sections, each containing descriptions of one or more studies and evaluations of the studies' significance. The first examines broad studies of the factors promoting or affecting bilingual education program success. The second section looks at research concerning attitudes toward bilingual education. The third section focuses on the need for program evaluation. Implications are drawn as follows: (1) a more uniform definition of bilingual education is needed; and (2) more evaluative research on bilingual education programs and their impacts is needed. (MSE)
