Editorial Reviews


"....This focus on the teacher-level in education language policies is welcome and long overdue....This is an excellent book that makes an important and outstanding contribution to the field. It is highly recommended for teachers and scholars working in the field of language education policies." --Education Review

"The editors have assembled a unique collection of state-of-the-art essays on language policies and education that focus on the role of teachers in the implementation of language policies in a wide range of educational contexts. All of the essays are informative, interesting and of a very high quality. Educational linguists, sociolinguists, applied linguists, teachers, future teachers and anyone else interested in the impact of language policies on classroom interactions would do well to read this volume."--Teachers College Record

"…An especially timely contribution in light of the growing impact of transmigration and globalization in education systems around the world."--Teresa McCarty, Arizona State University

"Kate Menken and Ofelia García have edited an important volume on multilingual language policy. Negotiating Language Policies in Schools: Educators as Policymakers comprises 13 studies, mostly qualitative, which shift the discussion of language policy from a macro to a micro-ideological discursive space. The voices and agencies of mostly – but not exclusively– teachers as policy-makers are richly textured with nuanced evidence throughout."—Language and Education
