Students worried about rights, culture, and education

While many UA students and faculty said there are problems with Arizona's bilingual education system, they agreed Proposition 203 is not the answer.

The roundtable discussion, attended by about 40 members of the University of Arizona community, was sponsored by the Chicano Hispano Student Affairs.

Proposition 203 would amend Arizona law to require that all public courses be taught in English, doing away with bilingual programs. Students in current bilingual programs would be put into an intensive one-year immersion, while continuing to learn academic subjects.

Adalberto Guerrero, retired UA Spanish lecturer, led the bilingual discussion with his negative feelings toward the proposition.
