This study continued the research conducted on two-way bilingual immersion by the National Center for Research on Cultural Diversity and Second Language Learning. This study examined instructional outcomes (English-language attainment), student populations (at-risk English proficient students), and long-term effects (elementary two-way immersion program graduates in secondary grades), and documented program implementation in schools across the country.
