ANCHORAGE, Ak--   According to a recent studym for the first time US public schools are projected to have more minority students than non-hispanic whites.

The Anchorage School District is one that also sees this trend.

The English Language Learners Program teaches english as a second language, and other academic means to students who come from homes in which a language other than english is spoken.

Currently there are close to 6,000 students in the district speaking 93 different languages.
