Bilingualism and bilingual education in a complex context: is language the true problem?
Örebro University, Department of Education. (KKOM-DS)
2009 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results of a study intended to establish a baseline for an intervention in bilingual-intercultural education in the Municipality of San Miguel Ixtahuacan, in the Department of San Marcos, Guatemala. To a great extent the paper deals with issues of bilingual education from the perspective of social justice. It analyses further various components underpinning the attempts to develop a comprehensive bilingual and intercultural education in that specific context. The paper is also exploratory in character; it intends to develop lines of analyses useful in discussing challenges faced by bilingualism and multilingualism in other contexts where complexities might be of a different nature. Central to the analysis is an assumption that socio-economic factors play a key role in bilingual, multilingual and intercultural education.
