Schools hope to continue bilingual education efforts
from Carlsbad Current-Argus
Imagine moving to a new country and being required to attend school and be graded in a language you're barely familiar with. That's what a lot of students in the Carlsbad Municipal Schools in New Mexico go through each year — the reason some schools in the district have applied for state funding to continue providing a bilingual multicultural education program. The bilingual program provided for students whose second language is English has been going on in the Carlsbad school district for many years and has had a lot of success, according to CMS Superintendent Gary Perkowski.
