Demand for multilingual education in the District is off the charts, but only 8% of District youth have access to these opportunity-boosting programs.
Ask your councilmember to invest in multilingual education for all District youth by supporting funding in the FY2019 budget.
The Mayor’s proposed fiscal year (FY) 2019 budget DOES NOT include funding for multilingual education which is key to building a city that competes successfully in the global marketplace.
Join us now to urge the DC City Council to add $550,000 in the FY 2019 budget to support and expand multilingual education so that all families, regardless of where they live, have the choice to raise multilingual children who excel academically across subjects, interact effectively with people from different cultures, and have access to a world of opportunity.
