The Protection and Rejection of Minority and Majority Languages in the Swedish School System.
Lainio, Jarmo
Current Issues in Language & Society, v7 n1 p32-50 2000
Discusses reasons for the collapse of mother tongue instruction in Sweden, including such issues as the transfer of implementation and economic responsibilities of educational politics to the municipalities; the unwillingness in Swedish society to support the bilingualism/biculturalism of minority pupils, and the poor municipal information and minimalist interpretations of open-ended formulations of language rights.
