Bilingual Education: Teachers' Narratives provides a valuable service by presenting the reality of bilingual education from the perspective of those most intimately involved in these programs, the bilingual teachers themselves.
—Anthropology & Education Quarterly
Lemberger's text is important because it makes present the complex realities facing bilingual teachers in classrooms, schools, and teacher education institutions....It also makes clear the need for quality programs and services for language minority students, an issue of particular concern given current anti-immigrant sentiments, Congressional actions, and demographic realities in an increasing number of school districts throughout the nation.

I found the teachers' narratives compelling--we all learn from the experiences of others, and we all find strength when our experiences, good and bad, are validated....The book faithfully replicates teachers' voices....Once I started reading, I couldn't put them down.
