Dual-language program attracts national attention
A program that teaches students in English and Spanish is succeeding in a state that bans bilingual education. And that program is getting national attention.
Educators from across the country recently toured Herrera School for the Fine Arts near downtown Phoenix. Members of the National Association for Bilingual Education met with the elementary school students, who switched easily from English to Spanish, to talk about why they like the program.
The project is held up as a national model. Details from The Arizona Republic.
