California’s Immersion Experience
Proposition 227 passed in 1998.
- Immersion programs “not normally intended to exceed one year.”
- Implementation has been uneven by nearly all accounts.
- Steady, strong gains in English proficiency for past 3 years.
- Generally, California school districts with most incomplete compliance with Prop. 227 showed smallest increases (below state averages).
