Celebrating Sonia Nieto's legacy... 

Sonia Nieto retires. It came as a surprise... how can she leave UMASS? What will follow her trail in support of multiculturalism?

Seeing Sonia moving on shakes the predictable image of my educational foundation. It was in the 80's when in graduate school she would be presenting a challenging concept of multiculturalism in a forum in which Bilingual education was nurtured. Luis Fuentes was there then patiently supporting her and all of us who are committed to community participation and decentralization. It was him today who told me of the retirement party and symposium taking place early next month. I look forward to the occasion to glance at her legacy and hopefully see old friends.
