Californians voted in 1998 to limit bilingual education, sharply reducing the number of English language learners who could be taught in their native tongue. Meanwhile, contradicting studies have indicated young students need to learn in their native language, and the state's English test scores have dropped. About one-fourth of the state's students are ELL, leaving educators to solve the problem. Some have decided to teach entirely in Spanish, for example.
Debate over bilingual education lingers in Calif.
