This dissertation seeks to determine whether or not
bilingual education programmes would be a valuable and
practicable educational alternative for migrant children
in Australia. The role of the school in relation to
migrant children, together with their educational attainment
and school experience in the present education system,
is reviewed. Research which investigates the effects of
bilingualism on identity, cognition and language skills
and the implications of these findings for bilingual
education is examined as well as relevant sociolinguistic
aspects. Implications relevant to Australia are drawn
from an examination of bilingual education programmes
overseas and bilingual programmes suitable for the
Australian situation, as well as the practicability of
establishing these, are discussed.
