Bilingual Opportunity

California’s Bilingual Opportunity: Supporting Students’ Home Languages

Across California’s K-12 classrooms today, millions of students arrived to school with an invaluable asset: the ability to speak a language other than English.

However, due to many factors, California has not prioritized quality bilingual programs for these students and many of them do not become literate in their home language.

See our latest fact sheet to learn more about the benefits of leveraging students' language assets in our schools and workplaces. This is the first in a series of three fact sheets by Senior Analyst Jonathan Kaplan and Research Associate Aureo Mesquita looking at opportunities policymakers have to help the state's bilingual students achieve biliteracy.
