Equity & Excellence in Education, v35 n2 p108-18 May 2002
Explored the relationship between race and language as related to bilingual students' educational experiences. Used Latino/a critical theory, Asian American legal scholarship, and critical race theory as frameworks to examine the aftermath of California's Proposition 227. Data from teachers and administrators highlighted significant variance in implementation of Proposition 227 across and within districts. Teachers felt pressured to speed up English acquisition at any cost. English-only ideology was pervasive. (SM)
