Utah education officials signed a memorandum of understanding with the French government to continue and expand a program that has educators from France teaching French in dual-immersion programs in Utah's schools and could send Utah educators to France to teach English. The state has signed similar agreements with Spain, Mexico and China, which provide instructors for Spanish and Mandarin programs. Twenty-five Utah schools have dual immersion programs, and the state plans to add 14 this fall.
