Figure 2 Principal debates and informing theoretical perspectives 19 Teaching Multicultured Students One of these institutions, School A,1 was already in the process of moving away from a previous system of the heavy withdrawal of bilingual learners towards far more in-class support, involving a dramatic change in the way both EAL2 and subject teachers perceived and configured their work. A recognition of the value of first-language maintenance had led to certain languages being offered on the curriculum as well as via twilight classes, while the school’s English department, which generally valued the presence of bilingual and bidialectal students in the classroom, had developed a public examination mode that enabled students simultaneously to sit both examinations in the then two-tier system (‘O’ level GCEs and CSEs) and, to a certain extent, to include in the coursework element of their examsubmissions work written in forms of non-standard English.

This movement, as has already been suggested, cannot be regarded as a tidy one. Not all local authorities, for example, provided off-site centres in the first place, while throughout the 1980s some education authorities were still Figure 1 The shift from exclusion to partial inclusion 17 Teaching Multicultured Students running such centres even as neighbouring authorities were returning to a policy of including early-stage bilingual students in mainstream schools. In some schools in those authorities, bilingual students were experiencing very large amounts of physical withdrawal, while in others they were included almost exclusively in mainstream classes.

This enquiry, carried out by the influential Commission for Racial Equality (CRE), investigated provision for bilingual students within one UK education authority—Calderdale, in West Yorkshire—where the policy was to provide specialist help for recently arrived bilingual students by withdrawing them into specialist language units. The Calderdale Enquiry concluded that Calderdale’s arrangements for ESL [English as a Second Language] teaching amounted to an indirectly discriminatory practice contrary to the Race Relations Act 1976 recommending that funds under Section 11 [money set aside specifically to provide additional support to immigrants from the ‘new commonwealth’] of the Local Government Act 1966 for ESL teachers should only be made available to [Local Education Authorities] whose system for teaching ESL either is, or is moving towards, a system integrated with mainstream schooling.
