Member Talk It seems almost too good to be true, but the bill passed out of the House last month. It is sponsored by Representative Paul Boyer (Republican, District 20), chairman of the House Education Committee, and was developed with various stakeholders. The Arizona Education Association played a large role in bringing the issue forward and building support for the policy, including acquiring policy guidance from nationally recognized linguistics and language expert Dr. Eugene Garcia. According to AEA Government Relations Director Stephanie Parra, support is strong for the bill and debate is focused on making sure the bill conforms to legal requirements from the Flores case. After so many years of policies which compromise public schools, the education profession and our students, it is hard for me to trust that this bill will make it into law. For once, though, I am unequivocally hopeful, and considering the possibilities for my future Emmanuels. You can track the bill at, and don't forget to call your legislator's office and express your opinion on the bill.
