This could mean that a conscious effort would be made to allow full use of a student's native dialect of English as the base on which education will build. Special programs might be implemented to lessen any interference that might come from the native dialect in the acquisition of skills and concepts in the school setting. The other extreme position is to formally establish that a dialect of Standard English must be acquired and used to replace the vernacular dialect. Support for this position comes from the belief that such a variety is needed for success in mainstream education and society.
