The Nationalisation of English.
Rosen, Harold
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v1 n1 p104-17 1991
Challenges the new, legally binding provision that spoken Standard English should be taught to all school pupils who do not already speak it. The socially sinister implications of the compulsory curriculum, the flawed description of Standard and non-Standard English, and the resulting lack of flexibility, negotiation, and contestation are all explored.
