In this chapter, we outline the contributions of Ellen Bialystok to our understanding of the effects of bilingualism on cognition and how these contributions have inspired research on bilingual education. We discuss how her work on cognitive impacts of bilingualism and bilingual education have contributed to and fueled research investigating academic achievement and learning across languages for both majority-language speakers learning a target language and minority-language speakers learning the majority-language. We conclude with the next steps and new questions that have arisen in this area of research and the implications for education.
