Bilingual Education and English Immersion: The Ramirez Report in Theoretical Perspective.
Cummins, Jim
Bilingual Research Journal: The Journal of the National Association for Bilingual Education, v16 n1-2 p91-104 Win-Spr 1992
Based on a literacy interdependence theory, uses findings from the Ramirez et al. study on programs for Spanish-speaking, limited-English-proficient students to refute theories opposing bilingual education. Expresses concern that all three program types in the Ramirez study reflect transmission models of pedagogy in which students have little opportunity for producing meaningful language. (KS)
