The candidates for the presidency of the United States have a number of learning objectives for the next several weeks, including the ones outlined by The Washington Post’s new presidential library.
The library aims to provide “a platform to bring together a diverse group of people and ideas from across the political spectrum, with a common interest in building a stronger America.”
The library will be staffed by academics, journalists, activists, and other experts, but it will also include “an array of tools and resources” to help people learn new languages and improve their English.
One of those tools will be an English-to-Spanish translator, according to The Post.
While it’s unclear how much money will be available for the project, The Post’s report suggests that the project could cost as much as $30,000 to $40,000.
In a blog post, The Washington Public Library Board wrote that the library’s initiative is intended to “create a safe and inclusive environment for all people to learn in an environment that welcomes everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, and age.”
The announcement comes just two weeks after Donald Trump and Ted Cruz both promised to “fundamentally change the way Americans learn,” while also “bring our country together.”
While many Americans may be concerned about how to teach their children the language, some Americans may also be hoping to create a safe environment for their children to learn.
“Our country has a long history of being open to learning a language that we all have a shared history and a common love of learning,” said Sarah Brat of the National Hispanic Leadership Conference.
“We want to bring people together.
And we are all working together to make sure that that happens.”
