The implementation of bilingual education for deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students, involving both sign language and the written/spoken vernacular, has been controversial. Its short history and the limited empirical evidence concerning long-term outcomes create difficulties for critical evaluation of claims made regarding its potential benefits. This chapter reviews the arguments and evidence presented in this volume as well as related literature regarding what we know, what we do not know, and what we need to know about sign bilingualism and bilingual education for DHH children. It considers both theoretical and practical issues associated with cognitive-academic, language, and social-emotional outcomes for bilingual education in general and co-enrollment programming in particular.

Keywords:   bilingual education, co-enrollment, achievement, deaf education, social-emotional outcomes, sign language
