Abstract: Results of this survey indicate that state administrators of early childhood programs believe duel language preschoolers are more likely to meet literacy goals if their home language is preserved and skills assessed in home language or a combination of their home language and English. They believe that dual language learners are more likely to have a successful school experience if their parents are provided with opportunities to get involved in their child’s educational program, and make decisions about the program.
