Troike, Rudolph (1978). Bilingual Education in the United States: The First Decade, International Review of Education. The tendency for bilingual education to remain locally-oriented and to resist outside input may impede its success. Unless the efforts to better instructional programs, teacher training, materials development, and evaluation improve soon, no amount of political or legal support may be able to sustain the movement.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Educational Quality, Elementary Secondary Education, Federal Programs

Cardenas, Jose A. (1986). The Role of Native-Language Instruction in Bilingual Education, Phi Delta Kappan. The use of language is imperative to the intellectual development of children. Yet language minority children in all-English learning environments are forced to cope with shallow levels of learning while their future learning abilities are severely impaired. Bilingual education with native-language instruction is still the best option for children with limited English proficiency.

Rippberger, Susan J. (1993). Ideological Shifts in Bilingual Education: Mexico and the United States, Comparative Education Review. Since the 1950s, arguments for bilingual education in the United States and Mexico have shifted from functionalist interest in modernization to critical demand for equity, then to interpretist recognition of multiple realities. Although minority groups are organizing to influence educational policy, entrenched dominant groups are unlikely to relinquish control.

Rasanen, Anne (1994). Language Learning and Bilingual Education: Theoretical Considerations & Practical Experiences. This article presents theoretical considerations behind the Jyvaskyla teacher in-service development program in teaching content through a foreign language and surveys some international experiences of bilingual education. The term "bilingual program" refers to all variations of bilingual education and teaching of non-language subjects through the second/foreign language, from total immersion to short, content-based courses. The ultimate aim of second language learning is some level of bilingualism, a complex concept to define. Definitions of bilingualism use the criterion of competence level, age or origin, the learning process, the individual's identification with the two languages, or the functions that the two languages have in his environment. Finns regard the ability to speak the language articulately as the main indicator of language proficiency. Language learning presupposes cognitive processing of input and real-life testing of the hypotheses formed. Various factors are involved in communicative competence; in Finland, teaching non-language subjects through a foreign language is referred to as immersion, foreign language content instruction, content-based language instruction, extended language instruction or language-enhanced content instruction. European models of bilingual education and considerations on the development of bilingual education are discussed.
