The Italian Bilingual Revolution Perspectives on maintaining one's cultural identity in today's multicultural NYC life

A little more than a year ago the Department of Education of New York started diversifying the multilingual offering in NYC Public Schools.
Thanks for InItaliano's activism, Italian language was added to the DL choices of Manhattan public schools. This expansion continues and this year a second Italian teacher has been added to the pool of teachers of PS242. Furthermore, a brand new "Early Immersion Program" has been introduced at PS132 in Brooklyn, in addition to the Italian DL of PS112 which is now being offered from PreK to 3rd grade and which will continue its expansion.

Other initiatives are in the works in other districts and the support network keeps expanding.
During this event we will also present the Italian version of Fabrice Jaumont's book "The Bilingual Revolution", translated from English into Italian by Stefania Puxeddu Clegg of InItaliano.

Looking forward to toasting with you to many more Italian bilingual programs in NYC!
