Bilingual Education: A Dream Unfulfilled. Editor's Introduction.
Benavides, Alfredo H.
Bilingual Research Journal, v26 n3 pv-xi Fall 2002
In the United States today, other languages and bilingualism receive no more respect than in 1954 when Mexican American children had to spend years in "pre-primer" classes before entering first grade. The rush to dismantle bilingual education programs has proceeded without any evidence of program failure. Without true equity and respect for diverse languages and cultures, education becomes of questionable value. (TD)
