The National Dual Language Immersion Research Alliance
The National Dual Language Immersion Research Alliance (Alliance) is a network of K-12 practitioners and education researchers. The mission of the Alliance is to advance quality and build capacity in additive dual language learning programs by identifying core features and variables for quality implementation to prepare students to be bilingual, biliterate, bicultural, and career and college-ready.
The Alliance is positioned to address the research and policy relevant issues that can ensure long-term success for this important intervention strategy.
The Alliance seeks to develop and carry out a rigorous research agenda on topics that matter to all schools involved in, or planning to be involved in, dual language learning. The Alliance will advance equity and excellence in education by providing credible, nonpartisan research and evidence about policies and practices that promote student success.
The Alliance is administratively housed at the American Councils Research Center (ARC) at American Councils for International Education and is led by ARC’s Co-Director Dr. Robert Slater, a highly experienced researcher and project director.
