How Common Core hurts English language learners
from The Progressive (commentary)
José Luis Vilson, contributor for The Progressive, writes: "When I was growing up, my family spoke mostly Spanish, but everyone at my school spoke English. Since my mother prioritized academic success over cultural acclimation for me, I found myself slowly abandoning Spanish. Taking Spanish as an elective in middle- and high school helped me make technical sense of the written language, but by then I had abandoned my mother's native tongue in full, uprooting a small sense of my position in my extended family."
