Dual language programs on the rise
from Harvard Graduate School of Education
From Jan. 29:
Dual language programs, which provide instruction in both English and a second language, are flourishing in elementary schools across the country as educators find benefits for both English language learners and those fluent in English. At a time when other types of bilingual education are on the decline and the B-word — bilingual — has been scrubbed from the U.S. Department of Education lexicon, dual language programs are showing promise in their mission to promote biliteracy and positive cross-cultural attitudes in our increasingly multilingual world.
