Proposal to restore bilingual education in California advances
from Education Week
A bill that would give California voters a chance to repeal the state's restrictions on bilingual education was approved by the state Senate and moves next to the state Assembly. The legislation, authored by Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara, would place a measure on the 2016 ballot asking voters to overturn Proposition 227, the 1998 ballot measure that severely restricted the availability of bilingual education for the state's English language learners.
