A recent report from the New America Foundation focuses on DC policies and programs, including Briya, that excel at supporting young dual language learners.
The report, put out by New America’s Dual Language Learners National Work Group, points to a number of lessons policymakers in other areas of the country can learn from DC’s success. These lessons include designing programs that are tailored to each school’s needs, having committed school leadership, and using co-teaching models that integrate DLLs into the classroom.
A summary of Briya’s dual-generation program is featured on page 13 of the report.
“Student outcomes suggest that Briya’s family literacy model is having a significant and positive impact on kindergarten readiness,” the report states.
