Surveys educational policies and practices in response to language diversity in twelve countries, and draws from them lessons for a more effective whole-school approach. Policies and practices are discussed in the context of political debate within minority communities and in the wider society of each nation, focusing on competing claims of integration and of language and cultural maintenance. Other subjects include the current status of immigration to the OECD nations, indigenous language minority groups, and classroom practices. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
