Episode Details

Original tape date: June 1, 2015.

First aired: June 3, 2015.

On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we talk about why decriminalizing smaller offenses may actually be a detriment to immigrants and have unforeseen financial ramifications for residents. We learn about a pilot program that uses cell phones to teach immigrants conversational English. Then Sarah Pizon profiles a dual language Japanese program in Williamsburg, Brooklyn set to launch in the Fall.
