The Benefits of English Immersion.
Porter, Rosalie Pedalino
Educational Leadership, v57 n4 p52-56 Dec 1999-Jan 2000

Hispanic parents are leaders in the movement. Dire predictions that bilingual children in English-language classrooms would fall behind have not materialized. (Contains 18 references.) (MLH)
