In May 2018, CA State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced Global CA 2030. This initiative is a call to action, urging parents, educators, and legislators to support a multilingual California, where students are proficient in more than one language. Global CA 2030 has set two main goals: (1) By 2030, half of all K–12 students will participate in programs leading to proficiency in two or more languages, either through a class, a program, or an experience, and (2) By 2040, three out of four students will be proficient in two or more languages and earn a State Seal of Biliteracy. The initiative also calls for greater numbers of both dual language programs and bilingual educator programs. Read more.
