Changing Face of America

In the second part of a series on "The Changing Face of America", NPR's Madeleine Brand reports on a multi-cultural classroom in northern Virginia. Elementary school teacher Mathina Carkci has students from Sudan, Egypt, Bolivia, Pakistan learning along side native-born Americans. Her challenge is to teach all the children, no matter what language they speak at home. One strategy is to pair English-speaking students with kids who are still learning the language it's a plan that's turned out to be mutually beneficial.
