The Context for Marginal Secondary ESL Programs: Contributing Factors and the Need for Further Research.
Grey, Mark A.
Journal of Educational Issues of Language Minority Students, v9 p75-89 Fall 1991
This essay suggests that many factors cause English-as-a-Second-Language programs to be isolated from mainstream school processes and to be given marginal status. Factors include lack of experience, one-way assimilation, lack of empathy, melting pot myth, the English-only movement, and the continuing need for a "labor underclass." (24 references) (LB)
