Lee, Steven K.
Bilingual Research Journal, v23 n2-3 p199-210 Spr-Sum 1999
A Los Angeles-area survey of 290 Latino parents of elementary and middle school children enrolled in bilingual education classes found that most parents did not understand the different models of bilingual education but thought that use of two languages facilitated their children's development of English. Although supporting bilingual education, most parents wanted their children placed in mainstream classrooms. (Author/SV)
