The Artist Behind Image of Immigrants Running

| 1 Comment

I know that I've been making too many posts about immigration lately rather than the education of English-language learners, which is the true subject of this blog. But I can't resist pointing you to this fascinating story published April 4 in the Los Angeles Times about the man who created the image of a family on the run posted on road signs near the U.S.-Mexico border. It's become a visual symbol of illegal immigration in this country. (I came across the story on ImmigrationProf Blog.)

What's the school angle on this blog entry? I think it's the kind of news story that would interest middle or high school students. I'll leave it at that.

Please don't stop posting immigration stories. I would never have seen this one if you had not posted it. It reminds me why I'm still committed to what I'm doing.

Thank you.
