      Abstract:

      "Bilingual Education: From Compensatory to Quality Schooling, Second
      Edition" maintains its original purpose of synthesizing the research
      on successful bilingual education in order to demonstrate that
      quality bilingual education is possible and desirable.

      Findings from a wide range of studies are integrated to provide a
      clear picture of bilingual education in today's schools, and a
      professional understanding of the foundations and issues surrounding
      bilingual education programs. The recommendations offered provide a
      comprehensive basis for planning, developing, improving, and
      evaluating bilingual programs. For clarity, these recommendations
      are discussed with respect to the whole school, the curriculum, and
      the classroom, but it is stressed that they need to be applied in a
      holistic way because they depend on each other. All educators who
      work or will work with bilingual students-classroom teachers,
      administrators, and curricula developers-will find the information
      in this text essential and will appreciate the straightforward
      approach and easy reading style.

      Since the first edition, Maria Brisk has been involved in projects
      that allowed her to refine her thinking on success, to document
      success, and to help develop a program using the characteristics of
      successful programs as a guide. In addition, the turn of events in
      the past several years has deeply affected bilingual education in
      the United States.

      Putting to practice the creation of quality bilingual education
      demonstrates the possibilities and the difficulties. Documenting
      this process highlights the need for collaboration and support in
      order to achieve quality education.
