Abstract:
This issue brief will examine some of the issues pertaining to the how language policy and SES are related. Due to a large flux of immigration from nations with a common linguistic and cultural background, and the globalized economy, there have been growing instances of a direct correlation between language policy and socio-economic status. For the purpose of providing an overview of this topic, the Spanish language will be the primary foreign language of focus.
