The Effects of Demographic Variables, Ethnic Prejudice, and Attitudes toward Immigration on Opposition to Bilingual Education.
Houvouras, Shannon Krista
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v23 n2 p136-52 May 2001
Analysis of data from the 1994 General Social Survey found that about two-thirds of respondents supported bilingual education. Opposition to bilingual education was greater among older, male, White, and college-educated respondents and among those having certain attitudes toward Latinos, immigration, and assimilationist ideology. Possible reasons why college graduates would oppose bilingual education are discussed. (Contains 24 references.) (SV)
