In this month’s Teach for America edition of the Listen Frontier podcast, we are joined by Mana Tahaie, interim director of Immigrant and Refugee Service at YWCA Tulsa, and Elsie Urueta, founder of the Tulsa Honor Academy charter school.

They are here to discuss the educational challenges faced by the immigrant community and those for whom English is not a native language. And, while they are at it, they give their two cents on controversial remarks made by state Rep. Mike Ritze, R-Broken Arrow, regarding immigrants and education.
