Bilingual Education: The Controversy.
Rothstein, Richard
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n9 p672,674-78 May 1998
A commonly held notion of how earlier generations of immigrants were educated--often used as the chief argument supporting English immersion--is a myth. Far from succeeding by immersing themselves in English, immigrant groups did much worse than the native-born; some groups, particularly Italians, did much worse than others. Research findings are mixed. Bilingual education issue should be depoliticized. (34 references) (MLH)
