Mixed methods research on effects of the high-stakes testing in Angela Valenzuela’s, Leaving Children Behind: Why Texas-Style Accountability Fails Latino Youth. Results from examining teaching science in dual language classrooms indicate that students involved in constructivist learning can pick up sophisticated concepts even if half of their instruction is in a second language. Qualitative studies in schools in communities in Mexico where families have relocated to work in U.S. factories (maquiladoras) revealed information about the added stress that our factories place on those schools.
