Dialect Barriers to Reading Comprehension Revisited.
Goodman, Kenneth S.; Buck, Catherine
Reading Teacher, v50 n6 p454-59 Mar 1997
Reprints a classic article originally published in this journal in October 1973, which argues that the problems vernacular-dialect-speaking students suffer in school are not the direct result of so-called dialect interference but rather the result of educators' negative attitudes (based on deficit theory) toward learners who speak vernacular dialects.
