Hellenic Language and Culture Study in South Australian Schools: Parents' Perspectives
Flinders University Department of Languages - Modern Greek
In this study, thirty parents of Hellenic background, born and educated in South Australia, share their current self-defined, bilingual and bicultural aspirations for the educational future of their children. The study examines how shifts in multicultural ideology affect the personal attitudes and perspectives of Australian born and educated parents of Hellenic background in regard to the bilingual and bicultural education of their children. The study is part of a continuous research project conducted in Adelaide from 1990–97 and in which a total of 90 participants were interviewed.
