"Forked Tongue: The Politics of Bilingual Education," by Rosalie Pedalino Porter. Book Review.
Amabisca, Anastasia Aimee
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v16 n4 p510-15 Nov 1994
Based on personal experience rather than empirical evidence, "Forked Tongue" presents a biased view that could damage the future of bilingual education in the United States. The book considers bilingual education a threat because it prolongs the learning of English and promotes the maintenance of other "un-American" languages that prevent language-minority students from becoming true Americans.
