Bilingual Education: Politics First, Children Second.
Shultz, Jim
Thrust for Educational Leadership, v28 n2 p22-24 Nov-Dec 1998
Passage of Proposition 227 (ending bilingual education in California public schools) in June 1998 holds many lessons, including the need to address criticisms early. In electoral battles, administrators should lead with parents, not educators, academics, or advocates. Proposition 227's fate was sealed a year earlier, when bilingual advocates blocked legislative reform efforts. (MLH)
