Series Title: Linguistic Diversity and Language Rights
Description:

The principles for enabling children to become fully proficient
multilinguals through schooling are well known. Even so, most
indigenous/tribal, minority and marginalised children are not provided with
appropriate mother-tongue-based multilingual education (MLE) that would
enable them to succeed in school and society. In this book experts from
around the world ask why this is, and show how it can be done. The book
discusses general principles and challenges in depth and presents case
studies from Canada and the USA, northern Europe, Peru, Africa, India,
Nepal and elsewhere in Asia. Analysis by leading scholars in the field
shows the importance of building on local experience. Sharing local
solutions globally can lead to better theory, and to action for more social
justice and equality through education.
