It also provides valuable insights to individuals responsible for developing second language literacy policies in the political, labor, and educational sectors.

Review:

'Throughout the text McKay has sensitively and effectively used "language minority" case studies to demonstrate inherent cultural differences as well as to provide valuable comparative insights ... Agendas for Second Language Literacy is a valuable reference text for those teachers and educators who are ready to participate in the conversation and for those seeking to explore and understand the issues surrounding second language literacy from a broader perspective than the classroom.' TESOL in Context, 1995

'This book is essential reading for any TESOL teachers who want to understand the broader social and political context in which they are operating ... It is both refreshing and inspiring to read a book which gives such a comprehensive overview of the political and social contexts of second language literacy. I recommend this book to lecturers of TESOL and literacy teacher training courses; and I particularly recommend it to teachers themselves who constantly battle to understand all the agendas and to do the best they can for their learners.' Prospect, 1995
