Education language policies which are inclusive of mother tongues and provide them with status can reduce barriers to educational access and equity, a global concern, especially in a ‘post-truth’ era. This paper contributes to international research by examining how education language policy in Wales, designed to support rights of speakers and grow the Welsh language, has potential to be co-constructed in a partnership between central government, local government and schools in the region of Wales with the fewest Welsh speakers. It discusses the paradigm-shift required for school-based practitioners to gain the agency required to embrace research-informed education language policy co-construction.
