Language Management in Education: The Australian Context.
Robinson, W. P.
Offering a comprehensive review of Australian research directed toward the study of the language use of children from different social backgrounds, this book assesses the validity of Basil Bernstein's thesis that many lower working class children are confined to a restricted code of language use. This evaluation is set in two wider contexts: what language is and how it works, and the ways in which the language performance of children is used by the decision makers in education. (FL)
