(Laredo, Texas)-Mayor Pete Saenz made a citywide proclamation calling for November to be Bilingual Education Awareness Month. The proclamation came after a request was submitted from United ISD Bilingual Education Director Carmen Pompa to the Mayor’s Office. Throughout the month of November, United ISD celebrates Bilingual Education with a series of Dual Language Showcases.
Laredo is notably known as the gateway between two nations divided by landscape, but unified in culture. A union joined by a commonality in language and tradition. United ISD recognizes that Bilingual Education in schools fosters an acceptance of different cultures and languages. This proclamation brings forth a citywide awareness of the importance of Bilingual Education.
