“Avenues: The World School” is a dual-immersion program in Manhattan that opened in August 2012. Students here can learn Spanish or Mandarin for half the day and English the other. Subjects even include “Being a Digital Citizen,” which teaches behavior on the Internet and email etiquette. Oh yeah, and they want to be paperless, as every child gets an iPad. The school plans to open 15 campuses in major cities around the world, encouraging live streaming classes and exchange programs.

Diversity in education can suddenly seem so far away, almost a luxury; only the elite can really afford to get educated in what today’s society demands from an “average” citizen.
