"African American, Creole, And Other Vernacular Englishes In Education: A Bibliographic Resource is a must-read text for anyone teaching courses about language and education, or anyone doing research on the same topic. In the era of search engines, digital catalogues, and the Internet of all things, books still matter, especially those that help us make sense of a large body of literature.” ― Tony Mirabelli, Teachers College Record
"This volume is an invaluable resource for students, sociolinguists, applied linguists, educationists and anyone interested in unstandardised vernacular varieties of language, and the issues surrounding the education of their speakers. It also sets a new benchmark for the compilation and presentation of bibliographic resources." — Pidgins and Creoles in Education
