Condemned without a Trial: Bogus Arguments against Bilingual Education.
Krashen, Stephen D.
An expert on second language acquisition examines and refutes five commonly offered arguments against bilingual education: (1) it is responsible for the high Hispanic dropout rate; (2) most immigrants succeed without bilingual education; (3) the United States is the only nation that has bilingual education; (4) bilingual education failed in California; and (5) public opinion is against bilingual education. A final chapter comments on J. Greene's "A Meta-Analysis of the Effectiveness of Bilingual Education," a study that re-analyzed existing data on bilingual education. Contents are indexed. Contains 13 references. (MSE)
