Indiana expands dual language immersion programs
from Indiana StateImpact
For the last few decades, dual language immersion programs in Indiana's schools have been rare. A handful are sprinkled throughout the state, but after this year's legislature allocated $500,000 to start a dual language immersion pilot program, five more schools will join the pool of available programs. This type of language initiative provides a unique learning opportunity for students and has been shown to increase test scores. Still, while many educators agree this type of program is academically and culturally beneficial for students, a lot needs to go into it for it to be successful.
