Bilingual education never really left Massachusetts, but it's been changing
from The Republican
First-grader Malone Rongner has lately been having a revelation: it's not just his teacher who speaks Spanish, but other people, too. That includes the workers at a Mexican restaurant where he recently ate. "He made the connections like, 'Hey, I know what they're saying! I can speak to them in that language that they're speaking in!' his mother, NJ Rongner, recounts. "And that was a really exciting moment for him where he realized that this thing that I'm doing that's really hard for me to learn in school has value outside of my school. And he was just so proud to be able to order his food and to ask for more napkins in Spanish!"
