English learners face many lessons at school
from The Associated Press via Omaha World-Herald
Imagine the first day of school, when you don't even know the language on the wall signs that could guide you to your classroom. That's what faced scores of new students who began their classes in Lincoln, Neb. The Lincoln Public Schools had more than 2,100 English language learners last year. The designation is given to students from other countries who can't speak English proficiently. There were 53 languages among those 2,100-plus students. This year's figures aren't yet available.
