» Bi-lingual Education System for Kids

Bilingual education involves teaching academic content in two languages, in a native and secondary language with varying amounts of each language used in accordance with the program model.

Dual immersion programs, sometimes erroneously called ‘bilingual education’ programs, refer to programs in which roughly half the students are native English speakers and half are native speakers of another language. Students are taught in English half the school day and the other half of the school day in the second language. The goal is to help all students become bilingual in a second language. While such programs are popular with parents of English-speaking students they are expensive and require there to be equilibrium between two language groups. Teaching children a second language is a laudable goal. But Pro English believes the first responsibility of the public schools is to teach non-English speaking children English as rapidly as possible.
