This study focused on perceptions on immigration and bilingual education. The study was conducted as a part of TESL 270 Introduction to Second Language Acquisition course. The data was collected using a Likert-scale and an open-ended questionnaire on the BVU campus where students, staff, and professors were sent a survey about immigration and bilingual education. For this poster session, the results will be summarized based on bilingual education, immigration, and demographic data. The theory and research based on bilingual education and immigration policies in the U.S. will provide a foundation for the survey results. Future implications of the survey will be discussed.
