Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, filmed at W.B. Simpson Elementary, Governor Markell highlights the World Language Immersion Initiative and announces its expansion.

“All of our young people deserve access to the best possible education and training for their futures. That means supporting them in reading, writing, math, and science, and helping them acquire key skills for jobs in growing industries. But, we must not overlook the value of language learning,” Governor Markell said. “We will ensure that students’ language proficiency doesn’t drop off when they reach middle school by allowing them to take courses in subjects like social studies and science in their immersion language. Our goal is to make Delaware the most bilingual state in the country. Doing so will create incredible opportunities for these students, and it will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
