New Approach to Nigritian English.
Ortega, Ramona
American Language Review, p4-5 Jan 1997
A growing trend in bilingual education is to provide instruction in standard ("mainstream") English for children who are native speakers of an English dialect, such as black English. Debate over the practice focuses on effectiveness and the potential drain on bilingual education funding. Although not criticizing or devaluing the nonstandard dialect, teachers attempt to ensure proficiency in standard English. (MSE)
