With his “teach them all” ethos, Superintendent Jim Rollins is on the leading edge of helping immigrant students and their families find a foothold in Arkansas’ Springdale Public Schools and the broader community. Springdale’s student body, which swelled from about 5,000 mostly-white students when Rollins arrived in 1980 to 21,500 students in the 2016-17 school year, now educates thousands of Hispanic immigrants, many of them recent arrivals to the United States.
