San Jose School Program Involves Entire Families For Whom English Is A Second Language

The San Jose Mercury News (4/13, Rosen) reports Union School District's Noddin School in San Jose, California, sponsored a pilot program, the Latino Family Literacy Project, which seeks to get Latino families for whom English is a second language "more deeply involved in the school community." For 10 90-minute sessions "the school committed to the entire family: parents, students and even younger siblings who stayed with baby-sitters." Dinner was included. While parents worked with teachers to build English language skills, students received tutoring.
