Educators in Mexico are adjusting to their newest students who are having trouble keeping up in class: U.S.-raised kids now back in Mexico with their parents, who have returned home in the face of America’s rising deportation and fewer jobs.
In the rural state of Zacatecas, where people have long migrated to the U.S., thousands of U.S. school-aged kids have entered Mexican schools, some for the first time.
Coming soon to The World, Myles Estey reports on a pilot project to teach Mexican teachers English to help these students with their new lives.
Teachers, have you learned a second language to help your students? How did you learn and how have your classrooms changed?
Daniel Inouye, the senior senator from Hawaii and the president pro-tempore of the US Senate, died Monday at the age of 88. He was born in 1924 to Japanese immigrants in Hawaii — before Hawaii was a state.
Inouye was elected to the US House in 1959, the year Hawaii became a state. He won election to the US Senate three years later where he served for nearly 50 years.
Senator Inouye of Hawaii has died. He was third in line to the presidency.
