The Absence of Language Policy and Its Effects on the Education of Mexican Migrant Children.
Bilingual Research Journal, v23 n4 p319-44 Fall 1999
The absence of a language policy in a rural central Illinois school district with a rapidly growing population of migrant Spanish-speaking students seriously affected the academic achievement and social inclusion of newcomer students. A case study focuses on attitudes and reactions of three teacher groups: English-only teachers, "bridge builders," and "bilingual is best" teachers. (Contains 52 references.) (SV)
