(p.73) Chapter 3 The Language of Citizenship
To Belong in Buenos Aires

Benjamin Bryce

Stanford University Press

Drawing from Argentine governmental and German-language sources, this chapter argues that bilingual schools pushed for a pluralist definition of citizenship and, in so doing, undermined many of the assimilationist goals expressed by a small group of Argentine elites. This approach contributes to a broader discussion of education and state authority in Argentina by highlighting how state officials attempted to confront cultural pluralism and how immigrants embraced and modified these efforts. Through a series of policies, the National Council of Education ensured that bilingual schools taught the Spanish language and a number of Argentine subjects that would equip children with civic knowledge for Argentine society. Yet that same system of regulation allowed immigrant educators to teach children a second language and other topics related to their parents’ countries of origins.
