Creole speakers have always been perceived as having less value than Formal Language speakers. “Creoles and creolized varieties of English are associated with low ethnic, social, political, and economic status” (Nero). More recently, poverty and low educationalsuccess rates have been causally tethered to Creole languages. However, there is a vocal minority of linguistic scholars and analysts who are advocating and changing attitudes towards the acceptance of Creole languages. This paper proposes that this embrace ought to be encouraged. This research aims to answer vital, existing questions in relation to the acceptance of Creole languages in education. The method of data collection will be through the mediums of Questionnaires for both teachers and students, and Interviews for the students. This interview will provide the researcher with information to make valid comparisons between the uses of Creole languages against the use of Formal English in the classroom setting.

Keywords : Creole, Inferior, Superior, Perception of Creole, Classroom.
