The Bilingual Revolution is a collection of inspirational vignettes and practical advice that tells the story of the parents and educators who founded dual language programs in New York City public schools. Convinced that bilingual education is a public good that should be offered to all students, these pioneers illustrate how these programs can positively transform a community, a school, and even a country. The book doubles as a "how to" manual for setting up your own dual language program and, in so doing, launching your own revolution.

Over the years, Fabrice Jaumont has coached parents, both Francophone and others, to participate in the “bilingual revolution” in the New York public schools. Now, he’s releasing a book about his experiences.
Dr. Fabrice Jaumont played a leadership role in this grassroots movement and he has just written a book about it. The Bilingual Revolution describes what happened and gives the necessary ingredients for those who plan to start a [dual-language] program.
