Roosevelt @ In Action: City College of New York

At City College of NY, Roosevelter Josh Kemp is working to pilot a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program in NYC as a precursor to state legislation that would support Dual Language Immersion programs in elementary schools state­wide. DLI programs have been touted for their successes in helping students of all backgrounds achieve higher levels in tested subject matter across the board, as well as equipping students to interact comfortably in two languages. Josh models his policy off of Utah legislation, providing similar programs statewide.
