Description


As the conservative political mood of our nation eliminates programs for the increasing numbers of bilingual children, educators are nevertheless expected to teach linguistically and culturally diverse learners with limited background knowledge and resources. This edited volume challenges mainstream educators to critically examine how to best meet the needs of bilingual/bicultural children in contemporary America.
