In the Aftermath of the Storm: English Learners in the Post-227 Era.
Gandara, Patricia
Bilingual Research Journal, v24 n1-2 p1-13 Win-Spr 2000
Numerous simultaneous educational reforms and limited data prevent drawing conclusions about the independent effects of California's Proposition 227, a 2-year-old English Only initiative. Achievement scores show little benefit for English learners. Observational data indicate that implementation of high stakes testing has encouraged teaching that rewards rote learning and undermines long-term success of limited English learners. (TD)
