Arizona school board to wade into English-immersion program fight
from Tucson Sentinel
Vince Yanez understands what the Arizona Board of Education could be getting in to this year when it begins a "systematic review" of the state's English language learner program. "Since the models had been created, there have been very strong opinions on both sides," said Yanez, the board's executive director. "The models" he is referring to are Structured English Immersion, a state-mandated program that puts non-English-speaking students into English class for four hours a day.
