ABSTRACT
The article reports on the vote of the United Teachers-Los Angeles in California for an immersion program in English that will extinguish the bilingual-education method in the district. The program also includes the exclusion of the Los Angeles Unified School District's policy of requiring monolingual teachers of limited-English-proficient students to study the native language as the second language.
