ProQuest Document View - Differences in achievement between students enrolled in a transitional, early exit bilingual program and in a dual language| two-way immersion bilingual program| A pilot study | Dual-Language Education in Public Schools | Scoop.it

The current pilot study compares the overall academic achievement in the area of language arts literacy among elementary bilingual students enrolled in either a Dual Language: Two-Way Immersion program or in an Early Exit, Transitional Bilingual program in a large urban public school district. By analyzing the results of curriculum based measures in the areas of word decoding and overall reading comprehension, this study shows that students who have been continuously enrolled in a Dual Language: Two-Way Immersion Bilingual Program reveal higher academic achievement than students enrolled in an Early Exit, Transitional Bilingual program, from kindergarten to third grade. The results of the present study appear to support previous research and previous similar studies on this topic.

What Is the Purpose of Education? - ASCD Education Update

What Is the Purpose of Education? - ASCD Education Update | Dual-Language Education in Public Schools | Scoop.it

What is the purpose of education? 

"In the United States, historically, the purpose of education has evolved according to the needs of society. Education's primary purpose has ranged from instructing youth in religious doctrine, to preparing them to live in a democracy, to assimilating immigrants into mainstream society, to preparing workers for the industrialized 20th century workplace.
And now, as educators prepare young people for their futures in a world that is rapidly changing, what is the goal? To create adults who can compete in a global economy? To create lifelong learners? To create emotionally healthy adults who can engage in meaningful relationships?"

This article looks at this issue from a variety of viewpoints, and provides historical look from 1934 to 1991. An interesting read that may raise more questions than it anwer.
