Inspired by the idea of return on investment of educational funding distribution, the present project began as a series of questions regarding the best allocation of funds in public school systems. Believing that investment in teachers would yield the highest return on investment through longevity, the author was motivated to closely analyze the quality and quantity of teacher training and professional development in the current Bilingual Project of the Comunidad de Madrid. Through questionnaires and analyses, the present project conducted research in order to evaluate undergraduate teacher training programs as well as professional development available to current bilingual primary school teachers.
