Hong Kong Children's Rights to a Culturally Compatible English Education.
Lin, Angel M. Y.
Hong Kong Journal of Applied Linguistics, v2 n2 p23-48 Dec 1997
Discusses why the right of access to the socioeconomically dominant symbolic resource, English, is a fundamental language right of Hong Kong children. Discusses why current English curricula design and practices do not provide such access and how they can be changed to provide Hong Kong with access to an English education that is compatible with its native culture.
