Learning To Forget: Reflections on Identity and Language.
Baez, Benjamin
Journal of Latinos and Education, v1 n2 p123-32 2002
A Puerto Rican scholar describes his second-grade experiences as a newcomer to the U.S. mainland: learning English required forgetting Spanish, and this "forgetting" was a requirement for successful inclusion into a new culture. Language has regulatory power to set up conditions for belonging and exclusion, but resistance to the hegemony and politics of language is possible. (Author/SV)
