The Return Of Bilingual Education In California? #bilingual #education

#bilingual education # The Return Of Bilingual Education In California? Nearly two decades after California banned bilingual education, voters next month will have a chance to restore it. Proposition 58 would officially end the era of English-only teaching and re-introduce instruction in English and a second language as an option. About 1.4 million English Language Learners, or ELLs, make up roughly 23 percent of California’s public school students. Most are Spanish-speakers.
