Latino Families Learning Together.
Osterling, Jorge P.; Violand-Sanchez, Emma; von Vacano, Marcela
Educational Leadership, v57 n2 p64-68 Oct 1999

The Arlington (Virginia) Public Schools have established first-language pilot programs to accelerate Latino students' academic achievement and have welcomed community-based educational initiatives. A family-literacy program motivates parents to become effective learners and productive citizens. (MLH)
