Minority Language Maintenance and the Ethnic Mother Tongue School.
Fishman, Joshua A.
Modern Language Journal, v64 n2 p167-72 Sum 1980
Examines the contributions of bilingual schools to minority language maintenance and stresses the inadvisability of relying on schools alone for this task. Uses the concepts of "primary and secondary reward systems" to argue that scholastic achievements cannot have any lasting impact without the sociopolitical and economic rewards of the primary system.
