State Sen. Ricardo Lara on why vote Yes on 58
California Faculty magazine feature

The Fall 2016 edition of California Faculty magazine, available online and in print through your campus CFA chapter, features a special guest article by State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), who is author of Proposition 58 on the Nov. 8 ballot. Prop 58 will restore multilingual education in California.

As Sen. Lara, who was a student when bilingual education was voted down 20 years ago, points out:

“Substantial research shows that students learn language in many different ways. Some students excel in language immersion programs while others do better learning in multiple languages.”

A “yes” vote on Prop 58 would let teachers and parents decide the best way to teach languages to the children in their classrooms.
