The Ethics of Doublethink: Language Rights and the Bilingual Education Debate.
Cummins, Jim
TESOL Journal, v8 n3 p13-17 Aut 1999
Documents the processes of "doublethink"--holding two contradictory beliefs about the same thing-- regarding the merits of bilingual education in the United States. Questions the ethical responsibility of academics and media commentators to address internal contradictions in the arguments they advance that are intended to deny first-language learning opportunities to bilingual children.
