Educator and bilingual-education foe remains in Romney's corner
from Education Week
A decade ago, Lincoln Tamayo helped convince then-gubernatorial candidate Mitt Romney to support a ballot-initiative that would drastically change the education of English-language learners in Massachusetts. Tamayo now runs a pair of private middle schools, one of them in Tampa—not far from where the Republican National Convention is being held this week—the other in nearby St. Petersburg, Fla. He says he hopes a future President Mitt Romney will take the idea he endorsed back then nationwide. In 2001, Tamayo was overseeing middle and high schools in Chelsea, Mass., including bilingual education classes where students learning English were taking all or most of their subjects in their native languages.
