SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A new program at three San Diego-area community colleges is hoping to bridge the gap between minority students and their teachers.
The Deber Program at Mesa, Southwestern, and City colleges hopes to encourage more bilingual people to become teachers.
“We don’t have enough people of color in the classrooms,” said Laurie Lorence, Teacher Education Director at Mesa College.
