Description:

This paper looks at how "Tongue-Tied: The Lives of Multilingual Children in Public Schools" addresses the different injustices suffered by multilingual children in the American school system. The paper explains the main implication of the work that the current method of incorporating ESL students into the school community renders them tongue-tied in their native language and/or culture, and does not enable these students to truly realize their academic and personal potential. The paper highlights the main message that America is a nation founded upon individualism, not assimilation, and creating an individualized and pluralistic approach is more effective for the school system and the students' education.
