Rising diversity in Sioux Falls, SD, puts strain on ELL education
from The Argus Leader
Except for Huron, there is no more diverse public school district in all of South Dakota than Sioux Falls. At last count in October, officials reported that 29.5 percent of the district's roughly 22,000 students were minorities. In Huron, where 41 percent of all its students are children of color, the majority are Karen refugees from Myanmar, or Hispanics. But refugee, immigrant and racial groups in Sioux Falls represent 51 different languages from across the globe that are spoken in homes here.
