The academic and cognitive benefits of second language immersion education are well-documented. Prince George's County is currently a leader in this area, boasting programs such as Caesar Chavez' dual immersion school, that can be found no where else in the DC area. Continued support for these programs is a vital step towards the goal of expanding second-language instruction in all PG County schools. Agree or disagree?

Please add to this question, "What should be done to ensure that students in ALL schools have exposure to second languages?" There is a related question that I will post separately.
