Abstract/Description: The purpose of this thesis is to determine the impact of bilingual education in the state of Florida on students’ academic performance. In order to procure an unbiased assessment of the effects of bilingual education, the reading and mathematics FCAT 2.0 scores for the years 2011 to 2014 in two bilingual, two partially bilingual, and two monolingual K-8 schools will be examined. The goal is to determine if program type has an effect on passing rates. For the purpose of this thesis it was expected that bilingual education does not negatively affect the performance of students in FCAT 2.0 reading and mathematics. The results show that two-way immersion program has a positive impact on academic performance in the reading portion of standardized assessments. The type of program does not appear to have an effect on students’ performance in the mathematics assessment.
