Power, Language, and Ideology: Historical and Contemporary Notes on the Dismantling of Bilingual Education.
Flores, Susana Y.; Murillo, Enrique G., Jr.
Urban Review, v33 n3 p183-206 Sep 2001
Situates the politics of language surrounding the passage of California's Proposition 227, discussing historical and contemporary conditions leading to the recent dismantling of bilingual education. Reviews the dynamics of power, language, and ideology from precolonial times until the present, and uses them to suggest that the hegemonic bond of language is a continual thread that carries over to the new millennium.
