Bilingual Education and Public Policy in Hawaii: Linguistic Considerations.
Ramos, Teresita V.
The author reports on a study of the acquisition of English as a second language by Filipino immigrant children in Hawaii, and recommends a comparative study of this kind across four or more Asian linguistic backgrounds and a comparison of the Hawaiian data with data from children of Hispanic backgrounds on the Mainland. The report concludes that the potential contribution of linguists is of profound importance to bilingual-bicultural education programs. (WP)
