Feedback form is now closed.
Many talk of explosive growth in dual language programming today. A discernible lag exists, however, in implementation of policies and systems to track program growth, monitor program quality, and support successful implementation. Presenters will share efforts to inventory dual language program growth via the update of a national directory, summarize recent developments in the field, and outline current trends in state policy. Participants will leave with a comprehensive overview of the dual language landscape today. Implications for the implementation of Proposition 58 will be addressed in this session.
