California's Proposition 227, passed in 1998, was intended to significantly alter the ways in which the state's English learners (ELs) are taught. This report is based on a five-year evaluation of the effects of the Proposition on the education of ELs. It examines how 227 was implemented, the services determined to be most and least effective, and the unintended consequences of Proposition 227's implementation. Chapter 6 covers the popular Community-Based English Tutoring program, CBET.
