Our good friend Ian Mursell has asked me if Nahuatl is being taught 
today in Mexican public schools.  I believe that it is, having seen some 
textbooks for kids, and believe that I know of at least one school, but 
can anyone else on the list add to this?

I just came back from a two-week tour of archaeological sites in Mexico 
and saw one school in the Yucatan proudly announcing that it was 
bi-lingual in Spanish and Maya.
