MTB-MLE Journal Article Now Accessible Online
The article The Challenge of Implementing Mother Tongue Education in Linguistically Diverse Contexts: The Case of the Philippines, published recently in The Asia-Pacific Education Researcher by ACTRC’s MTB-MLE team, is now accessible online at http://rdcu.be/nsiT. The article shares the results of a nationwide survey involving 50 schools in linguistically diverse areas, where a number of mother tongues are spoken. It describes the different ways the schools have implemented MTB-MLE, modifying models of implementation proposed in the national policy. Strategies for adapting the policy to diverse classroom realities are shared with the aim of helping policy-makers and educators in linguistically complex settings.
