When Language Teacher Educators, Language Policy Makers, and
Politicians Meet: Lessons from the South


Language policies play a role in the education and professional
development of language teachers and challenge teacher educators’
beliefs, practices, and skills. González explores issues of power,
status and local knowledge construction analyzing critically
agreements and tensions that have risen among Colombian language
teacher educators, policy makers, and politicians in the
implementation of the National Program of Bilingualism.
