Author(s) :
Overview Taken-for-granted language policies and practices in education often oppress those with little power. This book examines three groups most affected by such practices: women and girls; minority culture groups; and minority social groups. The author confirms that reforms are needed in the approaches that schools and school systems everywhere adopt when treating matters of language use. He offers suggestions to address the interests of all the groups concerned. Corson is Editor of "Language and Education: An International Journal", and has published "Oral Language Across the Curriculum" (1987), "Language Policy Across the Curriculum" (1990) and "Education for Work" (1991).
