Description: How do language policies in schools create inequalities among learners? How do policies marginalize some students while granting privilege to others? How do language policies in education serve the interests of dominant groups within societies? How can linguistic minorities further their interests through attempts to change language policies in schools? This newly updated edition of Language Policies in Educationtakes a fresh look at these enduring questions at the heart of fundamental debates about the role of schools in society, the links between education and employment, and conflicts between linguistic minorities and "mainstream" populations. Nine new and six fully revised chapters reflect developments in language policy since the publication of the first edition in 2002. Chapter authors are major scholars in language policy and critical language studies. All of the chapters are original and substantial contributions to the study of language policy and exemplify major theories and research methods in the field. The case studies are international in scope, and present cutting-edge analyses of important language policy debates in countries around the world.
