Governor Joe Garcia visited a highly successful program at Godsman Elementary School in Denver that promotes not only literacy, but biliteracy in Spanish and English. In partnership with the CU-Boulder’s BUENO Center for Multicultural Education, the school has fully integrated the Literacy Squared® model.
