Predominantly, bilingual education has been understood as an essential issue in the United States due to the constantly increasing flow of migrating people from non-English speaking regions and countries. Up to the present, bilingual education has a lack of structured approaches, which causes the existence of several uncoordinated educational programs, created in a slapdash way. Linguists provide a lot of peer reviewed articles, which criticize low efficiency of such programs: thus, a submersion program forces the student to acquire education completely in English; a transitional program implies that the students learn English while having classes in their native language; finally, a separatist program proposes that the students are to be taught in their own language with little place for learning English. Such programs and direction were used for the creation of sheltered English instructions – ESL (English as Secondary Language), ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), which now is being substituted be EFL (English as Foreign Language).
There are different views on programs for bilingual education in the United States. But how an appropriate EFL/ESL homework help can be provided, if the quality of programs is perceived as more important than the quality of bilingual education itself? Obviously, the program may be estimated as sufficiently good only if it helps students reach English proficiency without having to sacrifice their home cultures and languages. Subsequently, these students will be able to attain a rightful place in American society. Although, skeptics and opponents of bilingual education claim that however successful is the implementation of a linguistic program, “native” American students are still in a more advantageous position, for example, it is much easier for them to come out from tasks with good essay topics than for "non-native" students. Also, opponents argue that bilingual education is highly ineffective in comparison with an English-only curriculum. The knowledge of English has become indispensable, nevertheless: whether students intend to go to college or find a good job. So, what is the main reason of such linguistic inequality and what is to be done for improvement of bilingual education?
