One of the primary supports for Mandarin immersion is going away

July 18, 2013

Many programs, as well as Mandarin immersion as a whole, have benefited from FLAP grants. However the  Foreign Language Assistance Program was not reinstated in the Fiscal year 14 budget, and the $75m request for the Well Rounded Curriculum grants to State Education Agencies falls more than $400m short of the six grant programs it would replace. JNCL-NCLIS opposes this request and continues to advocate for restoration of the full $25m funding for the Foreign Language Assistance Program. –

If you’d like to find out more, and perhaps write to your congressperson about the need for more, not less, foreign language support, please read more here.
