School tries more English earlier for bilingual students
from Aurora Deacon News
Diane Argueta, East Aurora School District's director of bilingual services in Illinois, stood at the head of the Gates Elementary cafeteria pointing at a slide on a projector that outlined the objectives of the district's bilingual education program. About 50 Spanish-speaking parents, many of whom brought their young children, sat at cafeteria tables watching intently as Argueta reviewed the goals: teach children how to speak, read and write fluently in English and help them meet or exceed academic standards on state exams.
