Case Study 1: School A
This chapter provides the description of the first case study school. The chapter describes the school’s demongraphy, the background of its students and an overview of the school’s medium of instruction policies, illustrating which language is used to teach which subject and at which levels. The chapter also provides samples of lesson transcriptions and their analysis using discourse analysis, showing when code-mixing or code-switching is used in the lessons. The chapter also includes samples of the responses and views of the stakeholders interviewed and a discussion of these.
