The Illusion of Choice in Ethnic Bilingual Education.
Bain, Bruce
Integrated Education, v20 n1-2 p64-69 Jan-Apr 1982
Holds that, in Canada, educational achievement inequalities are erroneously attributed to language disadvantage rather that to the power implications imposed on languages by social-psychological relationships. Examines several countries' experiences with bilingual education, and stresses that children should master their native language before being taught in the majority language. (Author/MJL)
