A Critique of California's Evaluation of Programs for Students of Limited-English Proficiency.
Rossier, Robert E.
READ Perspectives, v2 n1 p27-51 Spr 1995
Reviews a 1992 study of California's bilingual education program, entitled "Meeting the Challenge of Diversity: An Evaluation of Programs for Pupils with Limited English Proficiency," and argues that the report too easily attributes the disappointing outcomes of limited-English-proficient students to lack of sufficient resources rather than to the methods of bilingual education.
