Students are studying foreign language longer

from St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Even though Missouri, and many high schools, don't require it for high school graduation, the number of public school students taking foreign language classes has more than doubled the past two decades. The number of Missouri students learning Spanish, French, German and even languages like Russian, Japanese and Chinese has grown from 89,684 in the 1991-1992 school year to 192,785 last school year, according to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Today, more students than ever are electing to take foreign language, as well as world history, to better their chances at earning early college credit and beefing up high school resumes. more
