Description: In a nation of immigrants, the questions surrounding bilingual education are not simply academic. Is diversity in language enriching or divisive? Do immigrants revitalize or drain the economy? Should language education aim for monolingualism, bilingualism, or multilingualism? These questions are central to our current political debate about what it means to be an American.

Description: What are the unique problems of providing schooling for a population on the move? How does such education compare with the more common experience of remaining in one school for ten months a year, every year? How can we effectively educate a mobile population that is generally indigent and speaks English only as a second language?
