This book explores bilingual community education, specifically the educational spaces shaped and organized by American ethnolinguistic communities for their children in New York. It reveals how these groups' efforts go beyond what has been called 'heritage language education' to focus on the construction of bilingual American diasporic communities.


This book explores bilingual community education, specifically the educational spaces shaped and organized by American ethnolinguistic communities for their children in the multilingual city of New York. Employing a rich variety of case studies which highlight the importance of the ethnolinguistic community in bilingual education, this collection examines the various structures that these communities use to educate their children as bilingual Americans. In doing so, it highlights the efforts and activism of these communities and what bilingual community education really means in today's globalized world. The volume offers new understandings of heritage language education, bilingual education, and speech communities for bilingual Americans in the 21st century.
