REP. JUAN CANDELARIA PUSHES CHANGE TO BILINGUAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
Rep. Juan Candelaria is pushing a bill that would increase to 60 months the amount of time a student is allowed to stay in a bilingual program. The current amount of time the program allows is 30 months.

"As a voice for our constituency, it is our duty to ensure that every Connecticut student is given a preeminent education," Candelaria said. "Students learning English in our school system are transitioned within 30 months from a bilingual education program into the regular curriculum, many without linguistic or academic proficiency. It is imperative that we address this important issue if we are to keep claiming education as one of our top priorities, and if we want our students to succeed." READ MORE | VER MAS
