Texas probably will appeal ruling about bilingual education



Texas will probably appeal a court ruling mandating a new language program
for an estimated 140,000 junior high and high school students who don't have
command of the English language, state officials said Monday. Legislative
leaders said curriculum improvements for that group of mostly Hispanic
students are probably on the way regardless of the appeal. The chairmen of
the House and Senate education committees said lawmakers were already
zeroing in on the problems of limited-English students - including low test
scores and high dropout rates - before U.S. District Judge William Wayne
Justice ruled Friday that the state has failed to properly educate those
students.
