Quest for Biliteracy.

wednesday_673x324More and more states are joining a movement passing laws to honor students’ bilingualism and biliteracy. In California, thousands of students have been awarded the State Seal of Biliteracy and now two school districts are being recognized for leading the way to ensure high school graduates are fluent in at least two languages. This program features an acclaimed bilingual student and leaders from pioneering districts, including one that served as a model for the State Seal.

Guests: Cynthia Orozco, State Seal of Biliteracy awardee, student at University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA; Richard Carranza, Superintendent, San Francisco Unified School District, San Francisco, CA, www.sfusd.edu ; Wendy Ríos, Teacher and Coordinator of Languages Program, Thomas Edison Elementary School, Glendale Unified School District, Glendale, CA, http://www.thomasedisonschool.org/
