Reasserting Language Rights of Native American Students in the Face of Proposition 227 and Other Language-Based Referenda.
Ferrin, Scott Ellis
Journal of Law and Education, v28 n1 p1-23 Jan 1999
Argues for new analysis of language rights of Native-American students as enunciated in the Native American Languages Act (NALA). Current efforts to model federal legislation on "English Only" referenda potentially violate NALA's statement of rights and policy in favor of supporting students' native languages. Does not take into account unique social ills confronting Native Americans, including danger of language extinction and cultural extermination. (75 footnotes) (MLF)
