The Primacy of Standard Language in Modern Education.
Custred, Glynn
American Behavioral Scientist, v34 n2 p232-39 Nov-Dec 1990
Supports the primacy of standard language usage in higher education, arguing that common communication and comprehension bind together a pluralistic culture. Contends individual student success and equality also are promoted by standard language usage. Calls for research into academic failure among minorities. Suggests standardization need not preclude study of dialects and folk speech. (NL)
