Investing in Language Education for the 21st Century

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences has just issued a report on Investing in Language Education for the 21st Century:

The executive summary ('Key Findings' and 'Key Recommendations') on pp. viii-x is well worth the look:
On pp. 23-24, the report singles out Columbia's dedicated track for Heritage Speakers of Russian as a model that can be adopted elsewhere and applied to other heritage languages.  

Congratulations to Alla Smyslova (Director of the Russian Language Program) who developed the program, on the well deserved recognition.
