And I’m asking you for a favor.
Over the next month, I’ll be searching for bilingual education sources and leads both in San Diego (or Southern California) and Tijuana. I want to know what curriculum changes administrators and teachers have made in order to address the needs of migrant children from Mexico and Central America now in their schools. And vise-versa. What are Mexican teachers and administrators doing in order to meet the needs of American students now living in Tijuana and other parts of Baja California? Perhaps you know of a good program or teacher or know of an issue I should be following … Dime!
I’m also reporting on how urban planners in Tijuana are dreaming up what that metropolis is starting to shape up to be — a diverse city of immigrants: Central Americans, Haitians, Americans, Mexicans and Tijuanaese. I’m specifically interested in housing needs, infrastructure needs for the colonias that have developed into what is now “sprawl,” and what does sharing water resources for San Diego and Tijuana look like in the future.
Does this sound interesting to you? Do you think you can help me? Fantastic! Cuéntame! Send me an email. Tweet me (@erikaaaguilar) or let’s connect somehow.
