Melissa describes Virginia Collier's article as supporting bilingual education. She also decribes Collier's writing as "emphasizing the importance of appreciating the different languages and cultures that are present in the classroom." Collier also describes the difficulties that bilingual teachers encounter, such as how to teacher enough English in less than one year? How do you teach English in a way that still supports and encourages the languages and dialects that our students speak within the home? Collier provided guidelines that she believes give educators the opportunity to better understand how teaching English to second-language learners can be beneficial. This is where I made the connection, like Melissa did, again to Delpit. In a way, Collier is struggling to find a way to provide our students with the resources that they need to be powerful and successful in school. She is attempting to find the best way to reach these students so that they are provided with equal opportunities to their peers. Collier is simply highlighting one of the factors that plays into Delpit's description of the 'culture of power'.
