Learning Mandarin May Be Important for Students' Future

Listen
AIR DATE: December 8, 2011

There are only three teachers in Clark County who are qualified to teach Mandarin Chinese.  There are roughly 1600 public and private schools in the US that teach Chinese.  In some cases China is sending teachers here to help.  Is it important for American kids to learn Mandarin for their future?  How will it help for kids who plan on staying in Las Vegas?
