AZCapitoltimes reports on new movement to change the Arizona law that requires "Structured English Immersion", and the provision that children learn English and be put in mainstream classrooms after a year. A description: "English learner students spend four hours every day learning English. State Department of Education officials say the goal of Arizona’s concentrated four-hour English training is to make students English proficient in one year. However, critics of this methodology point to research that suggests it takes the average person five to six years to become proficient in another language". Forget about the devaluing of bilingualism for a second. There really is no better way to ensure failure than to approach second language acquisition in this way.
