Abstract: In 1963 Dade County established a bilingual curriculum in an elementary school. Among other goals was attainment of equal proficiency in reading in Spanish and English. Results of language and achievement testing show that while many of the goals were achieved the proficiency in English as a second language excelled that for Spanish as a second language.
