Dual-language program at primary schools: good or bad idea ?

The 193 students in the dual-language program at the school in Silver Spring, the only program of its kind in Montgomery County, move between two rooms. In one, English is spoken; in the other, Spanish. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Pledge of Allegiance and announcements are in Spanish; on the other days, in English.
