Abstract:

Part of Springer's 10-volume series the Encyclopedia of Language and Education.

*Offers a thorough analysis of a range of conceptual issues in bilingual
education
*Discusses research since the 1920s and the conclusions that can be drawn
from it
*Covers illustrative bilingual education programs and policies from around
the globe

This volume addresses bilingual education, the use of two (or more)
languages of instruction in education. Although bilingual education is
available in some form in most countries, it is frequently the subject of
political debate, especially where a bilingual program is set up to serve
migrant populations.

The volume offers *A thorough analysis of a range of conceptual issues in
bilingual education *Discussion of research in the field since the 1920s
and the conclusions that can be drawn from it *Chapters on illustrative
bilingual education programs and policies from around the globe

This is one of ten volumes of the Encyclopedia of Language and Education
published by Springer. The Encyclopedia bears testimony to the dynamism and
evolution of the language and education field, as it confronts the
ever-burgeoning and irrepressible linguistic diversity and ongoing
pressures and expectations placed on education around the world.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
