dc.description.abstractEssay Review of Kennedy, S., and Dewar, S. (1997). Non-English speaking background students: a study of programmes and support in New Zealand schools. Wellington: Ministry of Education, Research and International Section. Kennedy and Dewar provide a report of programmes and support for some of the NESB (non-English speaking background) learners in New Zealand schools. The report provides some useful information and practical guidelines for action but it is argued that there are broader, more crucial issues involved than those considered. It is necessary in appraise the intercultural implications of school curricula, provide appropriate teacher development, and conduct appropriate research. A national languages policy which would embrace appropriate language-in-education policies is also required.en_US
