Arizona Targets Teachers with Accents, Ethnic Studies Programs

Arizona Targets Teachers with Accents, Ethnic Studies Programs

"The Arizona Department of Education recently began ordering school districts to bar teachers who speak accented or ungrammatical English from classes containing English Language Learners. The move comes after the state specifically recruited teachers from Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries in the 1990s, when Arizona schools allowed Spanish-speaking children to be taught in their native language."
