Immigrant students prompt new English language programs
from Fairfax County Times
The Fairfax County school system in Virginia will be piloting intensive English language programs at Lee and Stuart high schools in the fall, aiming to address an inpouring of immigrant children into county schools. The county received 1,541 children apprehended by immigration authorities between October 2013 and March 2015. Caught coming into the United States without a parent or guardian, the children are sent to live with parents, relatives or family friends in the country as they await hearings on their immigration status.
