I am absolutely impressed with your front page story on Dillon Valley Elementary’s plan to implement a bilingual approach to education. It is a known fact that children at a younger age have a higher capacity for language learning and a greater possibility of obtaining that knowledge in later years. Many fear what they do not understand and see the predominance of the Spanish language in much of the United States as some kind of a threat, rather than embracing diversity, tolerance, and multiculturalism that teaches us so much about the world. If children are taught from a young age to embrace cultural differences, it will only provide a richer experience for us all down the road. They will love the rewards it will offer them in life, and the opportunities to communicate with both people they meet in their own neighborhood and those abroad in their travels.
