Several states (California in 1998, Arizona in 2000, and Massachusetts in 2002) have passed laws outlawing bilingual education programs. And the transitional bilingual education programs for Spanish-speaking children that sprung up around the country since the 1970s have started to be replaced by English-only programs.

The traditional bilingual education programs of the past have always considered the two languages as separate bounded entities. This has been the case of prestigious bilingual education programs around the world where the elite educate their children, and of immersion bilingual education in Canada for the Anglophone majority.
