Bilingual education

What does Bilingual education mean?

Bilingual education allows for the teaching of students in two or more languages. Opponents of bilingual education argue it delays the assimilation of students into the American educational system, it is costly and wasteful. Many argue the national language of America is English, and the sooner students can learn English the better chance they have to be successful. They would also argue that bilingual education can impede the learning and fluency of the English language because it does not force students to learn English as quickly as their student counterparts.

Supporters of bilingual education, however, argue there are benefits for students to learn English in a more organic and efficient manner. Proponents also argue bilingual education and understanding more than one language can help students in the future as world communities become increasingly interconnected.
