Early Foreign Language Instruction in Irvington

This petition had 297 supporters

Give our children the tools they need for a bright tomorrow. Bring Early Foreign Language Instruction to Irvington Union Free School District.

When a child acquires another language, they acquire a lifelong tool that helps them achieve more academically and socially than they would with just one language alone. That tool is a unique lens that will help them navigate successfully through the 21st-century demands as global citizens.

Our community has expressed a desire to give our youngest children those tools time and time again. This proposal is not novel, yet we haven't seen concrete lasting action taken to fulfill this goal for a long time.

We need YOU!!

Please sign this petition to ask IUFSD and the Board of Education to implement a World Language program that facilitates speaking and writing competence in foreign languages prior to 6th grade.

Thank you for your support.
