Dual language immersion programs are catching on in Indiana’s schools.  The programs have been shown to increase test scores.

There are only a half dozen right now, but the state is investing $500,000 to launch five pilots this year.

StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny explains how these programs function, by starting in one of the state’s oldest dual language programs.
