A Response to “The Linguistic Isolation of Hispanic Students in California’s Public Schools”


by Robert T. Jimenez — 2006

In their chapter “The Linguistic Isolation of Hispanic Students in California’s Public Schools: The Challenge of Reintegration,” Gifford and Valdés consult the historical record concerning English-speaking Anglo contact with Spanish-speaking Californios in 19th-century North America and provide statistical evidence of the resegregation currently being experienced by Latino students (this volume, pp. 125–154). They describe how, shortly after the Mexican government ceded California to the United States in 1848, an ideology of racial, cultural, and linguistic superiority led to the enactment of English-only legislative and educational policy, as well as, ultimately, a segregated system of schooling.
