This book covers research findings on the language and education situations in Tanzania and South Africa. It outlines the policies governing language of instruction for education in the two countries, and assesses the extent to which existing policies are being implemented. It presents the history of the development of language policies in the two countries and considers how they are actually working in practice at classroom level. The contributors further consider the economic viabilities of language policies, and the necessity to rationalise languages and dialects for education purposes.
