Can anyone explain why all this literature refers to 'language
and not to 'the learning of Standard English'? Using 'language
makes it sound as if children are coming to school without any
Ron wrote "And that's exactly what the dominant US folk ideology assumes
language of African Americans."
Exactly -- is anyone challenging the terminology?
