Hazleton

    This morning we have a feature report for you from reporter Elizabeth Fiedler on the Hazleton, Pennsylvania school district.

    Hazleton gained national attention when its Mayor tried to punish landlords who rent to illegal immigrants.

    Now, with an influx of Spanish-speakers to the city, it’s not just the adults who are changing the area’s demographics. 

    The Hazleton School District has the tricky task of educating a flood of students who don’t speak fluent English – and Elizabeth will tell you how they’re doing it.
