The Russian version of the book titled Social Class, Language and Power. ‘Letter to a Teacher’: Lorenzo Milani and the School of Barbiana (Sense Publishers, 2013), co-authored by Carmel Borg, Mario Cardona and Sandro Caruana, was launched in St Petersburg, Russia, on Wednesday 12 October.
Professor Carmel Borg attended the launch. He gave a speech on the importance of revisiting ‘Letter to a Teacher’ in a global educational context increasingly marked by standardization, high-stakes testing and individual performativity.
Following two editions in English, Russian is the fifth language into which this book has been translated. The Lithuanian translation of the book is expected to be published in February 2017.
