You will prepare and submit a term paper on Advantages of Bilingual Education. Your paper should be a minimum of 1250 words in length. The notion of bilingual education is also based on the belief that teaching immigrants in their native language go beyond the benefits of ESL because it places an importance on the values of their families and communities and provides them with a feeling of self-worth. &nbsp.While opponents of bilingual education contend that achieving excellence in education requires immersion programs for foreign students (Finn,&nbsp. 1995), Dantas-Whitney et al (2009) have recently highlighted the importance of cultural understanding and appreciation as a tool to actually facilitate integration and assimilation of foreign cultures into American society.
