English First Foundation, Springfield, VA. (1990). Evaluations of Current Bilingual Programs. A discussion of bilingual education programs focuses on the methodology and stated results of program evaluations. It begins with definitions of five program designs for limited-English-proficient students: English-only; structured English immersion; English as a Second Language (ESL); structured home language immersion; and transitional bilingual education. The political context in which federal bilingual education initiatives were undertaken is examined, and early efforts to evaluate the resulting programs are reviewed. Substantial evidence that the programs have failed in meeting their stated objectives is drawn from the literature. It is concluded from this that the bilingual education movement persists not because policymakers want children to speak better English, but because of a broader agenda to promote cultural acceptance.
