Bilingual Education: A Ten State Report Card. CEO Policy Brief.
Amselle, Jorge
This report evaluates the bilingual education policy of ten states (Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Texas), in which 86 percent of the nation's limited-English-proficient (LEP) students reside. The report answers frequently-asked questions about bilingual education, and summarizes the laws and rules governing bilingual education in those states. An introductory section outlines how the states' policy "grades" were determined, presents data on the number of LEP students in each of the states, and addresses general questions about bilingual education. The summaries for the ten states follow, each noting an overall "grade" for state policy, the general guidelines provided by state law and regulations, parents' rights, specific bilingual education problems, and other comments arising from the evaluation.
