Bilingual Education

Code: HH-1000

Programs, usually within the formal education system, that offer content area instruction in two languages: the first language of students and the language of the majority culture. Attention is focused on developing the academic skills of minority students while they learn the language of the majority culture. Included are bilingual education programs that serve as a transition to instruction exclusively in the language of the majority culture and dual language instruction programs whose objective is to develop full literacy in both languages.
