Dual Language Education for a Transformed World
This book makes the case for dual language education to become the standard for all schools. Written for new and veteran implementers, it provides hope, rationale, guidance, and the tools to transform education to 21st century standards.
"The research of Dr. Wayne Thomas and Dr. Virginia Collier has opened the eyes of many educators, policy makers, and the community at large about the long-term effects of dual language education… Their work is also powerful for promoting the development of students’ native language, second language, and academic achievement.”
