Educational Policy for the Transnational Dominican Community.
Pita, Marianne D.; Utakis, Sharon
Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, v1 n4 p317-28 2002
Suggests the increasingly transnational character of many immigrant communities necessitates changes in educational policy. Using the Dominican neighborhoods in New York City, examines the economic, political, social, cultural, and linguistic evidence of the transnationalism of this community. A case is made for bilingual, bicultural programs that would promote parallel development in both Spanish and English, providing cultural as well as linguistic instruction. (Author/VWL)
