Congress Approves New K-12 World Language Grant Program

On December 9, 2019, the House and Senate agreed to establish a new world language grant program in 2020 as a part of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The World Language Advancement and Readiness Program directs the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Education to create a competitive grant program for "the establishment, improvement, or expansion of world language study for elementary school and secondary school students".
