What factors contribute to or impede a positive policy climate for dual language immersion education at local, state, and national levels? What are effective ways for immersion stakeholders to communicate about and advocate for program quality and growth? This symposium brings together a panel of six state-level leaders from the U.S. to report on the growth of dual language immersion education in their state and the policy and advocacy initiatives that have supported this growth. Participants will also be invited to engage in a dialogue about policies and practices that serve to promote or restrict high quality program implementation.
