The Scott Dual-Language Magnet school in Topeka, Kan., plans to use part of a $878,731 federal grant to purchase more Spanish language learning materials and books as the school grows its bilingual program. The school library currently has 14,000 books, but less than 5% of them are written in Spanish. "We're very excited. That's been a challenge -- giving equity in both languages," principal Sarah Lucero said.
