The Bilingual Revolution: The Future of Education is in Two Languages. (2017).
The Bilingual Revolution is a key piece in bilingual educational for both scholars and parents as it ties together learning and teaching aspirations with language ideologies and identities. Jaumont’s masterpiece engages readers in personal, political, and community stories of the country’s growing bilingual revolution and describes a systematic process recommended for parents and educational leaders who seek to create their own bilingual program. In the following sections, I summarize the main arguments of the book starting with the first chapter and ending with chapter thirteen. Then, I analyze the revolution Jaumont calls for and recaptures the book’s most important contribution: proposing a U-turn in our education to establish schooling practices that reflect the essence of our complex American identities and diverse linguistic ideologies.
