Presentation: The positive impact that bilingual opportunities have on schools and communities
Dr. Fabrice Jaumont is the author of The Bilingual Revolution: The Future of Education is in Two Languages which tells the story of a grassroots movement that emerged out of the dedicated involvement of motivated parents, educators, and community actors willing to create and support dual language programs in public schools. Combining insight on learning and living in two languages, the presentation shares practical applications and examples of bilingual education, from preschool to high school. With New York as a backdrop, Fabrice Jaumont, from a personal and scholarly perspective, will share the successes and setbacks of these programs through vignettes that feature parents and educators he helped start bilingual programs in their school.
