Language Wars: The Ideological Dimensions of the Debates on Bilingual Education.
Galindo, Rene
Bilingual Research Journal, v21 n2-3 p163-201 Spr-Sum 1997
A conceptual framework was developed to analyze ideological debates about bilingual education in California and Colorado. A discussion of language as problem, as resource, and as right reveals how viewing Spanish as a problem enables devaluation of bilingualism and the linguistic capital of Latino immigrants, and the displacement of Latino parents from participation in their children's education.
