Description

bilingual education

 

The Library is pleased to co-present with AAWE on a special evening program featuring Fabrice Jaumont and his new book on the importance of bilingual education. The Bilingual Revolution: The Future of Education is in Two Languages is a collection of inspirational vignettes and practical advice that tells the story of the parents and educators who founded dual language programs in New York City public schools. Convinced that bilingual education is a public good that should be offered to all students, these pioneers illustrate how these programs can positively transform a community, a school, and even a country. The book doubles as a "how-to" manual for setting up your own dual language program and, in doing so, launching your own revolution.

 

The Bilingual Revolution will be available for purchase (in English and French editions) and the author will sign them after the presentation.
