Schools Must Improve Translation Services, Says Immigrant Group

Half of New York City public school students speak a language other than English at home, but one group says translation services are lacking.

The New York Immigration Coalition has a basic goal for the city’s schools.

“We don’t want parents to be excluded from finding out how their children are doing and supporting their kids because they don’t speak English,” said Kim Sykes, the Coalition’s Senior Manager for Education Advocacy.
