This book aims to bring clarity to major issues confronting advocates in language policy and politics, demographic change, second-language acquisition, bilingual education research. The articles are united by belief that advocates must critically examine their own work to cope with on-going challenges.This is a collection of 18 essays addressing the policy and politics of educating English language learners. The subjects include demographic change and its educational implications, American responses to language diversity, public controversies over bilingual education, high-stakes testing and its impact on English language learners, and the precarious status of language rights in the USA.
