Bilingual education is not a recent issue in California. From the very beginning of the cultural encounter among Spanish and English speakers, we can find information in the newspapers about the situation. I will use 19th century articles from the Los AngelesTimes and El Clamor Público to present different sides of the confrontation. I will also useschool advertisements in order to understand which were the real educational options in Los Angeles in the middle of the 19th century.
