Legislators enter a bilingual-ed time warp
from The San Diego Union-Tribune
Steven Greenhut, a contributor for The San Diego Union-Tribune, writes: "Listening to Tuesday's debate on the state Senate floor over an attempt to revive 'bilingual education,' I was left wondering whether legislators simply have short memories — or whether the Capitol exists in some parallel universe. Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, championed his bill, SB 1174, which would ask voters in the November 2016 election to gut Proposition 227, the successful statewide initiative that required California schools to teach immigrant students mostly through English immersion. His measure passed the Senate on a 27-8 vote."
