v34-online-op-languages-copyright-istockTwo-Generation approach In a recent article from Education Week, the case for dual involvement of learning English within a family is presented.  The Center for American Progress finds that schools should also offer services to parents of students receiving ESL services. Personally, I think that’s a huge DUH!, but I know there are many that view education involvement of this level differently. It shouldn’t be assumed that families from different cultures understand education, especially in a new country.  Nor should it be assumed that these parents have their own education to learn from. It truly takes all stakeholders to be successful and the need is growing.
