Growing number of non-English-speaking students a challenge
from Aiken Standard
For years, Ingrid Mimcella has visited her young daughter, Fatima, in Guatemala, where the 10-year-old has lived with her grandmother. Her dream of bringing her daughter to America came true in January when Fatima arrived in Aiken. She soon enrolled at Oakwood-Windsor Elementary School, and Fatima could not speak English. She would cry when she could not understand the teacher, her mother said.
