The New York City (NYC) Department of Education plans to double bilingual programmes in the city. In total 38 new bilingual courses, including 29 dual language programmes, will start this September, with nearly $1 million in investment in planning grants for schools, libraries and training for teachers and administrators, the department announced.

Over 1,000 students had enrolled in UNNJ, whose busy Facebook and Twitter feeds notified students of closures for holidays or during blizzards.

But the whole university was a fake, a sting operation run for over two years by undercover agents of US Homeland Security that led to the arrest and indictment of 21 educational agents, student recruiters or ‘visa brokers’ on visa fraud charges.
