Includes interviews with the president of the California PTA, a Silicon Valley CEO, English- and Spanish-speaking parents, a Stanford engineering major who attributes her success to bilingual education, a member of the clergy, an expert in second-language education (Dr. Stephen Krashen), and a board member of the California school administrators' group (ACSA). Useful for house meetings, community events, workshops, and other venues.

Teacher Roundtable:
Language, Learning and Proposition 227

A half-hour video that explores the potential impact of the the Unz initiative if approved by voters on June 2. Bilingual and English mainstream teachers from the Pajaro Valley (Watsonville, California) discuss a range of issues:

  • How will children learn?
  • How will we teach?
  • English-only won't help children
  • Teaching English is the goal
  • Sued for speaking a foreign language
  • Proposition 227 is unfair to children

At the end of Teacher Roundtable there are two 30-second "No on 227" advertisements.

This video is useful for house meetings, group discussions, workshops, and for anyone interested in teachers' perspectives on bilingual education, Proposition 227, and education issues generally.
