Bilingual education takes a new form in California
from Latina Lista
With the passing of prop 227 in 1998, which put a ban on bilingual education, many thought bilingual learning had come to an end. This ban on language learning was not because California didn't need bilingual education in its school system, but it helped create the need for finding new forms of bilingual learning. In the past, non-English speaking students who entered the public school system were isolated from the rest of the class, pulled out and provided language support. This format discouraged bilingual education and isolated students, but paved the way for a new form of learning called dual immersion.
