1974: The Equal Opportunities Education Act. No one can deny teaching someone based on a language barrier. This Act made it so that all students would have equal opportunity in learning regardless of race, color, ethnicity and/or language barrier.
"Lau Remedies—guidelines from the U.S. Commissioner of Education Standardized requirements for identification, testing, and placement into bilingual programs. Districts are told how to identify and evaluate children with limited English skills, what instructional treatments to use, when to transfer children to all-English classrooms, and what professional standards teachers need to meet."

1978: Bilingual education became defined as becoming competent in speaking English by the United States Congress.
1989: So that students could maintain their native language, developmental bilingual programs were expanded.
1998: California passed Proposition 227, which rejected bilingual education. Children who are English Language Learners are made to attend sheltered English immersion programs, before being mainstreamed in classrooms.
America is full of English Language Learners. The United States is an immigrant nation. The history of multilingual and bilingual education is important to learn so that our American education system can continue to grow and become better than it used to be. Bilingual education has had a lot of ups and downs throughout American education history. Through our past ways of teaching students with language barriers, we are more knowledgeable on what helps ELLs learn easier and more efficiently. This timeline shows examples of past bilingual education in the United States and helps shed light on to how our education system has gotten to the present ways of teaching English Language Learners.
