Ethnic Identity and Bilingualism Attitudes.
Hurtado, Aida; Gurin, Patricia
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v9 n1 p1-18 Mar 1987
A study of attitudes toward bilingualism among a national sample of persons of Mexican descent indicated that politically framed ethnic identity fosters positive views of bilingualism. Traditional self-conceptions as Mexican and Spanish-speaking directly encourage support of bilingualism but at the same time engage conservative political attitudes that discourage it. (JHZ)
