Bilingual Education Policy and Social Justice.
Corson, David
Journal of Education Policy, v7 n1 p45-69 Jan-Mar 1992
A critical policy decision is choice of language used as instructional medium. Evidence suggests bilingual education policies are desirable on social justice grounds in pluralist societies. An educational system that serves a multilingual society and provides only monolingual schooling exercises power unjustly. Local minority communities should participate in deciding the shape and direction of their children's schools. (72 references) (MLH)
