Abstract:

In this first critical ethnography of bilingual education in Japan, YasukoKanno examines the relationship between school education and inequality ofaccess to bilingualism. She provides detailed and vivid accounts of thelived experiences of teachers, students and parents at five schools inJapan: an immersion school, a Chinese ethnic school, an internationalschool, and two state/'public' schools. Drawing on the concept of imaginedcommunities, Yasuko Kanno argues that schools provide unequal access tobilingualism by envisioning different imagined communities for students ofdifferent socioeconomic classes and socializing them into these stratifiedimagined communities. While additive bilingualism in two sociallyprestigious languages is aggressively promoted for upper-middle-classstudents, immigrant and refugee children are subtly coerced into replacingtheir first language with society's dominant language.
