Contextual Challenges to Dual-Language Education: A Case Study of a Developing Middle School Program.
Freeman, Rebecca
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v31 n2 p202-29 Jun 2000
Describes how a team of urban middle school educators developed a dual-language program to address the needs of their low-income, predominantly Puerto Rican students. Demonstrates how the structural, sociolinguistic, and ideological context influenced the way that this bilingual program functioned on the local level, challenging the dichotomous thinking that characterizes most discussions of bilingual education.
