The Wrong Sort of Capital? Bangladeshi Women and Their Children's Schooling in Birmingham U.K.
Blackledge, Adrian
International Journal of Bilingualism, v5 n3 p345-69 Sep 2001
Presents findings of a study of Bangladeshi women's relations with their children's school in Birmingham in the United Kingdom, and the ways in which languages and literacies are regarded as thresholds of power between the minority-culture women and the dominant-culture institution. Mothers of 6-year-old children were interviewed about their children's learning, attempts to support this learning, and communications with the school about this process. (Author/VWL)
