Sacramento charters school focusing on Hmong

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — School board trustees have approved a Sacramento charter campus focusing on Hmong children.

The Sacramento City Unified School District trustees voted unanimously Thursday night to approve the Yav Pem Suab Academy charter school.

The school will recruit all students, which is required by law, but instead of the typically offered foreign languages of Spanish and French, it will focus on Hmong culture and language.

The Sacramento district’s Hmong students have had the lowest English language test scores of all the district’s ethnic groups. ♦
