Bilingualism for All?: Raciolinguistic Perspectives on Dual Language Education in the United States (Bilingual Education & Bilingualism #125) (Paperback)
This book adopts a raciolinguistic perspective to examine the ways in which dual language education programs in the US often reinforce the racial inequities that they purport to challenge. The chapters adopt a range of methodologies, disciplines and language foci to challenge mainstream and scholarly discourses on dual language education.
