Proposition 58 Passed, Now What?

 Dr. Cristina Alfaro
California voters overwhelmingly supported Proposition 58 on the November ballot, which ended the 18-year mandate of English-only instruction in public schools.

Proposition 58 will not go into effect until July 2017, but it doesn't actually establish new bilingual programs. That will be up to local communities to decide.

But are there enough bilingual teachers in California to fill demand if communities do add programs? And what is being done to ensure new bilingual programs reach the neediest students?

Cristina Alfaro, associate professor of English language and biliteracy development in the College of Education at San Diego State University, discusses the issue on KPBS Midday Edition with Maureen Cavanaugh.
