Bilingual educationis extermely important in the United States. First of all, the world is becoming smaller and smaller by the day because of globalization. The second reason the study of bilingual education is important is because of educational standards. Every country within the world implements English and at least one other foreign language within their educational systems. This is again, because of globalization. We should not (third) expect everyone in this world to learn English, we ned to broaden ourselves as they have broadened themselvse to learn a foreign language. It is also imortant because bilingual education gives the next generation a competitive edge over others who are not bilingual, and it also helps people become effective communicators.
