Summary

A discussion of language policy development focuses on the components of rational policy with reference to the Queensland (Australia) language education policy developed recently. The paper argues that language policy is ultimately derived from the nature and needs of the society, the goals identified for the future of the society, and the consequent language needs leading to policy recommendations. Further, it is proposed that if policy is to be more than unsubstantiated ideals, it must be possible to be implemented and justified. Consequently, the policy must be followed through to firm implementation proposals, with specific indicators of success for the purpose of policy evaluation. Appended is an extract from the "Rational Frameworks" of the Queensland language education policy outlining specific societal and individual needs and related goals and objectives, policy recommendations, implementation proposals and recommendations, indicators of success, and rationale.
