More of the State’s Students are Taking Foreign Language and World History Classes

As Missouri celebrates International Education Week, a new study shows that more of the state’s students are taking foreign language and world history classes. Last year, public school enrollment in world history classes totaled nearly 90-thousand students, compared to the 53-thousand ten years ago. According to the data from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the number of students studying Spanish had almost tripled in Missouri in the past two decades.
