Eugene, Oregon votes for Mandarin immersion
The Eugene School District will offer a fifth language immersion program to its students beginning in the 2017-18 school year.
At its meeting Wednesday, the Eugene School Board unanimously voted to approve the district’s proposal to implement a K-12 Mandarin Chinese program.
