Bilingual education overhaul under way
from New Haven Independent
The principal sent the alert: Ms. Lopez's baby was on the way. Amid a shortage of bilingual teachers, Rocio Ramos scrambled to cover a class — and keep the momentum going of a new effort to revamp the New Haven, Conn.'s, largest bilingual education program. That scene unfolded the other day at Fair Haven School, where Maggie Stevens-Lopez and other teachers have been leading an effort to overhaul bilingual education. The school, seated in the heart of the city's Latino community, offers bilingual classes for kids in grades K to 8 — the largest program of its kind in the city.
