Weisman, Evelyn Marino
Urban Education, v36 n2 p203-25 Mar 2001
Interviewed four Latina teachers regarding relationships between their bicultural identities and attitudes toward English and Spanish. Results illustrate how bilingual people cope with pressures of living in a society that promotes conformity to the dominant culture, highlighting the strong correlation between identification with Latino culture, political consciousness, and value for Spanish as a means of affirming Latino students' cultural identities.
