Bantu outnumber Hispanics at immigrant-friendly schools

The Nashville Scene reports in this article that Somali Bantu children outnumber Hispanic children at Nashville's Cora Howe Elementary and other federally assisted immigrant-friendly schools:

"Nashville educators first began noticing Bantu children in their classrooms toward the end of last school year, but the real influx came in September, when Somali Bantu children replaced Latino children as the most visible minority at Cora Howe Elementary and other schools that teach federally funded programs for non-native speakers."
