Parents United for Excellent Dual-Language Education

RGV PUEDE’s mission is to organize parents, families, and communities to support, improve, and extend dual language programs from Pre-K to 12th across the Rio Grande Valley.

Dual Language is a model of bilingual education that fosters true bilingualism and biliteracy, enhanced awareness of cultural diversity, and the highest levels of academic achievement in both English and Spanish. Unlike traditional “bilingual” programs, dual language programs are considered additive or enrichment programs (like Gifted and Talented) because all students learn academic content in two languages instead of being pressured to use only English.
