Going Global: Can Dual-Language Programs Save Bilingual Education?
Varghese, Manka M.; Park, Caryn
Journal of Latinos and Education, v9 n1 p72-80 2010
In this commentary, we extend the cautionary tales regarding dual-language programs raised by several scholars by considering the interface of such programs with global education. We consider the possible pitfalls of uncritically framing dual-language programs within the global education movement in the United States, especially in light of how this new framing will affect the educational opportunities and experiences of Latino/a students throughout the country.
