      Abstract:

      This book addresses questions of language education in the United States,
      focusing on how to teach the 3.5 million students in American public schools
      who do not speak English as a native language. These students are at the center
      of a national debate about the right relationship among ESL, bilingual, and
      mainstream classes. Bilingual education has been banned by constitutional
      amendment in California and Arizona, and similar amendments are being
      considered in other states. "Language Minority Students in American Schools: An
      Education in English" places this debate and related issues of teaching
      standard English to speakers of nonstandard dialects, such as black English,
      within the larger context of language acquisition theory and current methods of
      language teaching. It is intended for students who are preparing to become
      teachers of English as a second language, and for teachers ofother subjects who
      work with English language learners.
