The Bilingual Revolution: The Future of Education is in Two Languages

March 20, 2021, Fabrice Jaumont, Ph.D., will give a talk about his acclaimed book The Bilingual Revolution: The Future of Education is in Two Languages, "which provides guidance and advice for parents and educators who want to create a dual-language program in their own school." According to Conor Williams, the book "stands on the edge of the nascent bilingual revolution running through the United States' school system and asks how it might be improved and encouraged."
