*LANGUAGE POLICY PROCESSES AND CONSEQUENCES*

*Arizona Case Studies*

*Edited by Sarah Catherine K. Moore (Center for Applied Linguistics)*



*Reviews*

*Arizona is the miner’s canary for linguistic human rights. Authored by
scholars and practitioners who have been directly involved in documenting –
and contesting –Arizona’s English-only policies, this highly accessible and
important volume is a call to action for all concerned with social and
linguistic justice in education. From segregated schooling to the
nullification of accommodations for English learners, the authors bring to
light the toxic consequences of restrictive language policies, while
clearly pointing the way to more equitable and appropriate educational
alternatives.  *

Teresa L. McCarty, Kneller Chair in Education and Anthropology, University
of California, Los Angeles, USA



*This excellent volume carefully and deftly documents how language policies
have impacted educational opportunity for Arizona students. The
multilayered coverage of language policy processes is remarkable – from
legal ramifications to implementation in schools. It is an important
contribution to the field, offering both theoretical and methodological
insight and innovation.*

David Cassels Johnson, University of Iowa, USA



*Arizona is ground zero in language policy affecting immigrant children in
the US. Moore’s volume tells the story of English-only policies in Arizona
with informative chapters on the history, legal context, and empirical
consequences for students, teachers, and administrators. It is a must-read
for scholars, policymakers, and activists concerned with the education of
bilingual learners.*

Jeff MacSwan, University of Maryland, USA



*Description*

This book accessibly and comprehensively outlines the highly complex case
of the English-only movement and educational language policy in Arizona. It
ranges from early Proposition 203 implementation to an investigation of
what Structured English Immersion (SEI) policy looks like in today's
classrooms, and concludes with a discussion on what the various cases mean
for the education of English learners in the state.
