Title VIIESEA: The Ambivalence of Language Policy in the United States.
Padilla, Raymond V.
Bilingual Research Journal, v22 n1 piii-viii Win 1998
Reflects on the public debates over bilingual education since passage of the Bilingual Education Act 30 years ago. Focuses on ambivalence toward bilingual education and bilingualism, demonstrated by the failure of colleges and universities to train adequate numbers of qualified bilingual teachers and by those who value learning a "foreign" language but not maintaining a non-English mother tongue.
