First Language First: Literacy Education for the Future in a Multilingual Philippine Society.
Young, Catherine
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v5 n4 p221-32 2002
Examines Philippine bilingual education policy, which emphasizes the need to develop literacy in Filipino as a linguistic symbol of national unity and identity and in English as a language of wider communication. Contends that a technical model of literacy acquisition that emphasizes literacy primarily as an economic skill for use in the workplace cannot achieve the policy goals. (Author/VWL)
