  • Students in Minn. district get more language choices
    Two elementary schools in White Bear Lake, Minn., have started offering Mandarin Chinese to students after considering feedback from parents. Other schools offer Spanish, and district officials say plans for next year include introducing foreign language programs in all elementary schools. In middle school, students' options include French, German and American Sign Language. Principal Dan Schmidt says these programs are challenging students to go outside of "their comfort zones."
