Synthesis of Research on Bilingual Education.
Hakuta, Kenji; Gould, Laurie J.
Educational Leadership, v44 n6 p38-45 Mar 1987
Reviews educational research on bilingual education and describes biases present in recent evaluations of bilingual programs. Contrary to assumptions about bilingual programs, recent findings suggest that native-language programs may be very effective. They support a strong foundation in the native language and set the basis for subsequent learning in English. Includes extensive references. (MD)
