A Slice of P.I.E. Helps ESL Students

The Tower has an article on P.I.E., a program to help ESL Students at Kean improve their English.

"Founded last October, Partners in English (P.I.E) is a program that will help shed some light for many ESL students. It is a product of Dr. Ruth P. Griffith, ESL Program Director, and graduate student Agnes Markowitz's idea for a 'conversation partnership program' between native English speakers and non native English speakers who were education majors."
