"Cheating" as Good Pedagogy: Bilingual Teachers Defying English-Only to Foster Student Achievement
Reyes, Reynaldo, III
Multicultural Perspectives, v10 n4 p209-213 Oct 2008
"Cheating" is a form of resistance in pedagogy for bilingual educators. Bilingual educators "cheat" in classes where English as the only language of instruction is strictly imposed by school or district officials, but these teachers "cheat" by using the native language of their English language learners because they know they must. But, for many teachers in today's political and antagonistic anti-Mexican, anti-foreign language climate, not using a student's native language for instruction is the equivalent to injustice.
