New WWC Intervention Report on Dual Language Programs

The WWC reviewed the research on dual language programs, in which classroom teachers instruct students from an early age and over multiple years in both English and a second, partner language. Based on the research, the WWC found moderate evidence that dual language programs positively impacted student literacy achievement in English. The WWC found uncertain effects on science and mathematics achievement. More high-quality research is needed on dual language programs.
