Title: Language Planning and Education
Written By: Gibson Ferguson
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748612628
Series Title: Edinburgh Textbooks in Applied Linguistics
Description:

Language Planning is a resurgent academic discipline, reflecting the
importance of language in issues of migration, globalisation, cultural
diversity, nation-building, education and ethnic identity. Written as an
advanced introduction, this book engages with all these themes but focuses
specifically on language planning as it relates to education, addressing
such issues as bilingualism and the education of linguistic minority pupils
in North America and Europe, the educational and equity implications of the
global spread of English, and the choice of media of instruction in
post-colonial societies.

Contextualising this discussion, the first two chapters describe the
emergence and evolution of language planning as an academic discipline, and
introduce key concepts in the practice of language planning. The book is
wide-ranging in its coverage, with detailed discussion of the context of
language policy in a variety of countries and communities across North
America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Key features
* Accessible and readable introduction to the field.
* Wide coverage of issues with illustrative examples from a range of
countries in different continents.
* Discussion exercises and suggestions for further reading.
* Explores and comments on controversial issues.
