Li, Guofang, Ed.; Beckett, Gulbahar H., Ed. – Stylus Publishing, LLC, 2006

Guo, Yan – TESL Canada Journal, 2006
When I visited Canadian elementary and secondary schools over the past 10 years, many teachers told me that it was difficult to get English-as-a-second language (ESL) parents involved in K-12 education.

English has become the dominant global language of communication, business, aviation, entertainment, diplomacy and the internet. Governments as well as some scholars appear to be accepting such a spread of English uncritically.
