The student population in suburban schools near Columbus, Ohio, is becoming more diverse, new research shows. The change has led schools to adopt programs to meet the needs of more students who are learning English as a second language, and to make other changes in programming to help accommodate the various cultures. "We want our children to grow up with exposure to world cultures -- languages, their customs, different ways and backgrounds. It makes them more well-rounded young people," parent Steve Hittle said.
