You make a good point about bilingual education. I too am very interested in it and it's something that I think California schools are hopefully not too far from implementing into their public school programs. It's interesting to point out a computer program that is bilingual because imagine how easy and helpful it can be to keep kids off a tracking system. Imagine for example a young immigrant who does not know English very well and cannot understand his math teacher. She thinks he needs to be put down a level but really he is fine except for his lack of nglish. A program may be designed to help such a student who has the other skills but lacks the English.
