Philly school district registers 800 students speaking 40 languages from 70 countries

The School District of Philadelphia’s special registration for immigrant students who speak a language other than English closes on Aug. 28, giving families of such students roughly two weeks to register their child for the upcoming school year.

The school year begins Sept. 8 for grades 1 through 12, and on Sept. 12 for kindergarten students; interested families should contact the Multilingual Assessment Center at (215) 400–4240 and selecting option 1. The office is open for registration Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Last year, the center registered more than 800 students from more than 70 countries. Collectively, those students spoke more than 40 different native languages.

    we are such a stupid people that we are paying for this shit and the millions of dollars in interpretors and tutors as these people have no interest in learning the english language.

    When I was in second grade we had a Spanish speaking student who knew no English. There was no special Spanish language teacher hired. She was more able to learn English by not being taught in Spanish. It kinda defeats the purpose.
