What Do Parents Think of Two-Way Bilingual Education? An Analysis of Responses
Ramos, Francisco
Journal of Latinos and Education, v6 n2 p139-150 2007
Three hundred sixty-six parents of children enrolled in a school-wide English-Spanish two-way bilingual program participated in this study. They were asked to answer a survey that attempted to elicit information about their degree of satisfaction with the program, as well as the reasons that led them to select it, and their perception of and support for Spanish. In their responses, the parents showed strong support for the program, valued its academic and linguistic emphasis, had positive opinions about Spanish, and created home environments that facilitated their children's development of literacy skills in this language.
