This occasional paper of CU's Education in the Public Interest Center (EPIC) describes Colorado's present distribution of programs for educating students who natively speak languages other than English and whose abilities in English are limited. The paper documents that the overwhelming majority of Colorado schools presently do not use bilingual education. The new anti-bilingual education initiative is therefore targeting an exaggerated opponent, but the collateral damage to other programs will be substantial.
