Support World Language and Dual Language Education in K-12 Schools
Representative Jimmy Panetta (CA-19) has introduced the World Language Education Assistance Program (World LEAP) Act (H.R. 5603), a bipartisan bill to establish world language and dual education grants that will:

  • ensure high quality in-service professional development (20% of grants set aside for PD);
  • stem the educator shortage;
  • ensure access for all students, including multilingual learners or English;
  • diversify the educator pipeline and ultimately the workforce; and
  • develop data on best practices for multilingualism
