Public schools in Macon, Georgia, are one of the lowest achieving in the state. Even more staggering is the fact that half of its students drop out. But now Haitian-born superintendent Romain Dallemand has implemented a plan to launch Macon’s schools to the top of the list. How is he doing it? He’s making Mandarin Chinese mandatory for all students.
Dallemand’s plan takes into account that Mandarin Chinese has 836 million speakers, making it the most spoken language on the planet.
Also, China has trillions of dollars in capital to invest. In the United States can tap into that large amount of money via business with the Chinese government, businesses and nonprofits. To do so, Americans who understand basic Chinese or speak the language fluently will be able to engage with businessmen and women in China, who themselves speak English.
