Education Council Discusses Dual Language Programs Tonight

There will be presentations from two Lower East Side schools developing dual language programs at District 1’s Education Council meeting tonight.

The Shuang Wen School (P.S. 184) is sought after by parents citywide for its dual language curriculum.  Back in January, we reported the Department of Education had determined the school did not meet city, state and federal requirements for official “dual language” status. Since sometime last year the DOE and the school have been working to implement new academic programs and admissions policies to bring the school into compliance.
