Class, Ethnicity, and Language Rights: An Analysis of British Colonial Policy in Lesotho and Sri Lanka and Some Implications for Language Policy.
Brutt-Griffler, Janina
Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, v1 n3 p207-34 2002
Examines language policy in two British colonies--Basutoland (Lesotho) and Ceylon (Sri Lanka), during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Finds that mother tongue education and the concomitant restriction of the teaching of English for the working classes in these colonial contexts constituted a form of industrial education.(Author/VWL)
