The article reflects on the continuing discussion over the federal role in bilingual education along with the implementation of the First Amendment Rights in the U.S. It argues that the First Amendment Rights should offer freedom to express, receive and transmit family values and beliefs to language minority students. It should provide a powerful tool for understanding and remedying the damage presently being made to language-minority families.
