Story excerpt:

"Hsa Mlu, a mother of four children, recently started receiving communications from her sons’ Aurora schools in her native Southeast Asian language, Karen.

'I am so excited,' Mlu, who has two sons in Aurora schools, said through an interpreter. 'I am sure it’s going to be better for parents.'
