Then later in the week I gave a talk about the results of the National Literacy Panel on Language Minority Children and Youth at Manhattanville College in Rye, NY. This conference was getting at something pretty important: the big cities are shedding a lot of their minority and poverty populations. If those kids are pushed out of the city, where do they go? To the suburbs, of course, and for many of those teachers it is a whole new thing. Again, I was honored to take part.
