This is an article about an immigrant who rose to valedictorian.

Read it. You’ll be glad you did…


Craig Albers, an associate professor of educational psychology with expertise in English-language learners at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said that while the high number of non-native, English-speaking valedictorians should be celebrated, the district still has work to do.

“How many English-language learners are dropping out or underachieving? How many have the potential to be scientists, physicians, lawyers or engineers?” Albers asked. “We should celebrate once we know the English-language learners have equitable access to education and everything else.”
