Immigration Boom Affects NE Indiana

Many northeast Indiana school districts have experienced a large increase in students who speak English as their second language.

Wawasee has not experienced this phenomenon like others. I believe it is primarily due to the housing differences and the fact that most of the manufacturing companies that have job openings are located close to or in Elkhart county.
