Re: [xmca] Obama's Learn Act

I am somewhat afraid that this post may be seen as "purveying academic drivel for self advancement", as Mike puts it." But here goes.

The second edition of The Meaning Makers - the study of children learning to talk and talking to learn at home and school, based on the Bristol Study that I carried out a quarter of a century ago, has recently been published. As well as the original text, updated where appropriate, it contains three additional chapters that survey and comment on what has happened since the original publication. I do believe the evidence of that study is relevant to the ongoing discussion of the Learn Act.

For those who are interested, here are the publication details:
