General Vang Pao Announces He’s Returning To Laos


General Vang Pao, considered by many to be the leader of the Hmong people, announced last night that he plans to return to Laos and seek reconciliation.

There are a lot of potential implications for this move. It could possibly mean a deal could be made to allow some of the thousands of Hmong in refugee camps or in the jungle to enter the United States. Education-wise, it could mean a new wave of pre-literate students entering schools in communities where there are large numbers of Hmong now. And, of course, it also creates a lot of grist for classroom lessons now.
