Pullling together the most upt-to-dte research on the effects of restrictive language policies, this timely volume focuses on what we know about the actual outcomes for students and teachers in California, Arizona, and Massachusettes - states where these policies have been adopted. Prominent legal expers in bilingual education analyse these policies and specifically consider wheter te new data undermine their legal viability. Other prominent contributors examine alternative policies and how these have fared. Finally, Patricia Gandar, Daniel Losen, and Gary Orfield suggest how better policies, that rely on empirical research, might be constructed.
