BILINGUAL EDUCATION HAS BEEN INDICATED TO BE INEFFECTIVE
Nowadays, the majority of countries in the world join in cooperating each other to fund their life. It needs more qualified human recourses that are capable in communicating with other countries civilization. Obviously, they need to be educated from childhood. The best way to raise a bilingual child is to expose them to both languages at the same time. Therefore, bilingual education is published to the society. Bilingual education is the practice of teaching non-English speaking students core subjects in their native language as they learn English. Developed in the 1970's, such programs were intended to help children keep up with their peers in subjects such as math, science and social studies while they studied English (www.proenglish.org/). Nevertheless, the great number of bilingual school in Indonesia is provided for the huge enthusiasts itself. It is not balanced with the quality of the elements which support the bilingual education. This means that bilingual education has been indicated to be ineffective. There are several reasons why bilingual education is impressed that way, three of which are based on: the capability of the teacher, the psychological burdens of the students and the future destiny of the student also. The first reason is that the capability of the teacher who teaches in bilingual school is hesitated. The teacher is one of the important elements in the education. They set the students’ background knowledge as the facilitator and the conductor of the learning process. This condition should be run as well as the aim by providing qualified teacher. However, in the bilingual education especially in Indonesia, the teachers who are capable of teaching by English language are limited. Therefore, the only choice is to employ native speaker to be a teacher. As I find in some sources, many of them are not graduated yet from a college. For instance, the history teacher in one of the bilingual schools is only graduated from senior high school. He was only a disc-jockey when he was in US. This means that the qualification in hiring the bilingual education teacher is low.

while the students of bilingual education have 70% of English competence. bilingual education does not achieve good result for the society as they think before. one of the students in bilingual school says that he only catches a few words and the rest is his teacher’s grumble speech. the future destiny of the students is still being doubted to reach success easily. For instance. In addition. At least he/she can comprehend 98% of economic knowledge. Afterwards. It can be summarized that they are despair with such a conditions. It is different from those who study economic by mother language. this means that they have the same chance with other regular freshmen. References: http://www.html http://www.
