Language Attitudes and Underperformance in West Indian Children
Edwards, V. K.
Educational Review, 30, 1, 51-8, Feb 78
The role of attitude in the extensive underperformance reported among West Indian children in British schools is of critical importance. This includes attitudes of the host community towards West Indians and vice versa. Suggests that there are strong links between attitudes towards a language and attitudes towards speakers of that language. Describes experiments designed to measure attitudes towards West Indian and British speech and the implications for schools and teachers. (Editor/RK)
