Prop 58: Bilingual education in schools 12 MIN, 18 SEC

One in five California students speaks another language at home. How to educate these children was the subject of Prop 227 passed in 1998. It ended transitional bilingual education in the state, requiring schools to provide a year of intensive English before mainstreaming the non-English speakers. Some say students benefited greatly from the change. But others think it's time to repeal it. Prop 58 would repeal some key provisions of Prop 227 and offer schools the option of also providing bilingual instruction. We hear compelling arguments from both sides of the issue.

Prop 64: The legalization of recreational marijuana use 15 MIN, 52 SEC

One of the hottest measures on the ballot this November is Proposition 64, the one legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. California legalized marijuana for medical use in 1996. But are voters ready to take the next step? We look at both sides of the very high profile issue.
