Illinois Mandates Bilingual Preschool

Illinois recently became the first state in the nation to mandate preschool bilingual education screening (EdWeek) -- even as suburban communities propose English only legislation and the nation debates so-called anchor babies.  All that and more will be discussed at the November 16 conference sponsored by the New Journalism on Latino Children (NJLC) project. Join the discussion at DePaul University in Chicago on Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (latinopolicyforum.org) Does CPS already do preschool ELL screening?  Do kids get ELL services along with the screening or does that just take effect when they get to "real" school?
