In this article and video from Education Week, native Spanish speakers and native English speakers in San Jose, California, USA learn together resulting in achievements in literacy and family engagement. In addition to the success of language learning, it is interesting to contemplate what role this learning experience might have in building relationships across cultural groups and worldviews. Perhaps this type of language education could be a model for nurturing peacebuilders who can bridge differences in the larger society.
