Book Information


Title: The Education of Language Minority Immigrants in the United States
Edited By: Terrence G. Wiley
Jin Sook Lee
Russell W. Rumberger
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

The Education of Language Minority Immigrants in the United States draws
from quantitative and qualitative research methodologies to inform
educational policy and practice. It is based on cutting-edge research and
policy analyses from a number of well-known experts on immigrant language
minority education in the USA. The collection includes contributions on
the acquisition of English, language shift, the maintenance of heritage
languages, prospects for long-term educational achievement, how family
background, economic status, and gender and identity influence academic
adjustment and achievement, challenges for appropriate language testing and
placement, and examples of advocacy action research. It concludes with a
thoughtful commentary aimed at broadening our understanding of the need to
provide quality immigrant language minority education within the context of
globalization. This collection will be of value to students and
researchers interested in promoting educational equity and achievement for
immigrant language minority students.
