Immersion Programs: The Irish Experience.
Cummins, James
International Review of Education, v24 n3 p273-82 1978
This paper examines the evidence on negative effects associated with Irish immersion programs and concludes that even in earlier immersion schools, which frequently lacked parental support, there is little evidence of detrimental academic effects. Many Irish immersion teachers emphasized the importance of parental commitment to immersion schooling. (Author/SJL)
