Leung, Esther K.
Journal of Educational Issues of Language Minority Students, v7 p35-51 Sum 1990
Discusses the difficulties that young children may experience in the early transition from a culturally/linguistically diverse home to school. It is suggested that teachers, parents, and children must be educated to encourage the early transition of young minority children so that early childhood schooling can enrich the psychosocial and intellectual well-being of all children.
