This very original, inspirational book globalises our understanding of languages in education and changes our understanding of bilingual and multilingual education from something mostly western to being truly transnational: it spotlights the small, celebrates African and Asian cases of multilingual classrooms and demonstrates that such education is universally successful. Colin R. Baker, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Bangor University, Bangor, Wales, UK A norm-setting work on multilingual education, which combines theoretical perspectives with practical experience from different parts of the globe, this book demonstrates convincingly not only that multilingual education works, but also that, for most developing countries, there is no viable alternative. Ayo Bamgbose, Professor Emeritus, University of Ibadan, Nigeria This excellent volume brings to light the fascinating lived experiences of multilingual education in linguistically rich but resource impoverished countries, and offers important lessons from which we can all learn. Amy B. M. Tsui, Professor , Pro Vice-Chancellor & Vice President, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong This is a book of hope and inspiration. Documenting the significant shift that is taking place in countries around the world in the status and legitimacy of mother tongue-based multilingual education, it represents a giant step towards a "tipping point" where mother tongue-based multilingual education will be normalized as the preferred and, in fact, common sense option for educating the children of the world. Jim Cummins, The University of Toronto, Canada This important book challenges us to think about multilingual education from a different angle––this time putting the periphery at the center. The effect is one of destabilizing old visions and imagining new worlds where multilingual education provides the backdrop for generous understandings of all peoples. Ofelia García, Program in Urban Education, Graduate Center/The City University of New York, USA There are regrettably few detailed accounts of successful elementary school instruction in the pupils' home language, which makes this book with its surprising examples (especially Ethiopia and Nepal but other third world cases) so relevant. Students of language education policy will learn a great deal about the possibility of multilingual education from the chapters of this important book. Bernard Spolsky, Professor Emeritus, Bar-Ilan University, Israel At least half of today’s languages are marginalised and endangered and the attention of the world needs to be focused on these minor and minority languages together with the value of multilingualism. If the book succeeds in enhancing the consciousness of the world towards predicaments of the third world, then its efforts will have been amply rewarded. Debi Prasanna Pattanayak, Former Director, Central Institute of Indian Languages, India Drawing on the most powerful and compelling research data to date and connecting this research to linguistic human rights, this book explores the conditions and practices of robust bilingual and multilingual educational innovations in both system-wide and minority-settings and what it is that makes these viable. It demonstrates how, in countries where educational practices are inclusive of linguistic diversity and responsive to local conditions and community participation, implementation of bilingual education even within limited budgetary investment can be successful.

Is biology destiny? Are schools shortchanging girls or boys? If so, what can educators do to ensure that both succeed? These are among the questions confronting teachers of students of all ages. "The Jossey-Bass Reader on Gender in Education" is a comprehensive anthology that explores the varied terrain of gender landscape-offering a thought-provoking view of the educational paths taken by girls and boys. Comprehensive in scope, yet easy to read, this fascinating anthology brings together a wide variety of perspectives from the major camps of the gender debate to illustrate how this issue affects every facet of the educational enterprise. The book includes the most groundbreaking and controversial pieces on gender while examining key developmental, learning, and cultural theories underlying the gender debates. Topics covered include the nature/nurture debate, gender achievement gaps, testing and teaching bias, the cultural context of gender, and sexual harassment. Featuring a Foreword by Susan Bailey, executive director of Wellesley Centers for Women, The Jossey-Bass Reader on Gender in Education includes excerpts from controversial articles that sparked debate, such as the AAUW (American Association of University Women) report "How Schools Shortchange Girls, " Christina Hoff Sommers' "The War Against Boys," Carol Gilligan's" In a Different Voice, " and William Pollock's "Real Boys." The thirty-one articles and book chapters in this collection represent an extremely wide range of opinions and approaches to the topic of gender equity. Taken together, they dispel any notion of quick fixes or exclusively one-sided disadvantage-but will leave readers with a clearer understanding of the complexities inherent in any discussions of education and gender.
