Implications of English-Language-Only Instruction

Between the late 19th and turn of the 20th century, the US
experienced record-breaking immigration (Brennan, 2002) That is, immigrants
from many different parts of the world, particularly from Southern Europe,
Asia, and the United Kingdom, were coming into the country Politicians, policy
makers, and educational psychologists were faced with the task of educating the
children of immigrants Indoctrinating these children into their new American
culture expanded beyond teaching about the ever-changing practical implications
of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, etc
Moreover, those in power wanted to provide an organized approach to
assimilating new immigrants and subsequent generations into the “American”
culture, particularly in the primary and foundational grades 1-9 Therefore,
academic instruction was provided in English What do you think are the
implications of this history?
