Because 90% of today's languages could be extinct by 2100 and language diversity may be as important as bio-diversty. Long-stablished cultures hold precious insights into the world. Letting them die may lose us invaliable knowledge in many fields.
I would definitely recommend The Power of Our Words in the Responsive Classroom series. Too often we don't think about how the words we choose in the classroom work against us.
I also loved Teacher Man by Frank McCourt as an inspirational and nitty-gritty, real-life story.
