One likely reason why this research has received so little attention from researchers and policy-makers concerned with educational reform is that the construct of ‘identity’ is difficult to operationalize in quantitative ways. As Norton and Toohey (2011: 426) point out, the ‘methods required for investigating the intersection between identity positions and language learning are complex . . [and] methods that rely on static, inherent, and measurable learner “variables” are not consistent with some of the major understandings of these approaches’.

Consequently, many schools do not encourage bilingual students to showcase their linguistic accomplishments, thereby missing an important opportunity both for identity affirmation and enabling students to use their L1 as a cognitive tool. The policy vacuum in relation to linguistic diversity at the level of provincial ministries, school boards, and individual schools is paralleled by the absence of any required courses in most faculties of education that focus specifically on linguistic diversity issues.
