Crisis in the Southwest: Bilingual Education Program Inconsistencies
Gallo, Yadira; Garcia, Martha; Pinuelas, Lucia; Youngs, Irene
Multicultural Education, v16 n2 p10-16 Win 2008
Staff development is too often inadequate or overlooked in bilingual education. Rather, bilingual educators are forced to seek outside resources and strategies because of inconsistencies in school district bilingual programs. These authors offer a "crash" course for other teachers who may be looking for solid information about bilingual education. They define and discuss bilingual education and its history, report on their analysis of the current bilingual programs in a Southwestern United States border city, and explain why they find them lacking. Based upon this information, the authors present then a research-based ideal bilingual program that focuses on student success. (Contains 2 tables and 1 note.)
