The first article, "The Cost of English Acquisition Programs: Arizona Department of Education English Acquisition Cost Study" contains excerpts from a study (Phases 1 and 4) conducted for the Arizona Department of Education on the costs of various English-acquisition programs. Six successful but varied English-acquisition programs for immigrant children are highlighted. A more in-depth analysis of a seventh program (Nogales Unified School District) confirms the effectiveness of English-immersion teaching in a community where 90 percent of the population speaks Spanish. The publication also includes the following: "Testing English Language Learners for School Accountability: A Report Prepared for San Francisco Unified School District et al. v. State Board of Education et al." (Susan E. Phillips); "All That Glitters Is Not Gold: The Limits of the Department of Education's English Learner Achievement Data" (Christine H. Rossell); "Seven Successful Bilingual Schools in Texas" (John R. Correiro); and "Meeting the Needs of Students with Limited English Proficiency: A Critique of GAO's Report" (Jim Littlejohn).
