Summary Bilingual education is under attack. Letters to the editor, editorials, and talk show hosts repeat the same arguments nearly daily. Bilingual education, they say, doesn't work. In this empirically grounded monography, Krashen answers the critics. His book examines the following issues: Does the research show that bilingual education doesn't work? (No); Is English in trouble? (No); Are most parents and teachers against bilingual education? (No); Will bilingual education work for languages other than Spanish? (Yes); What about those who succeed without bilingual education?
Subject Education, Bilingual -- United States.
