Read the White Paper: 2012 Secondary Education Graduate Summit- Blanchi Roblero
In the midst of current education budget discussions, the teaching profession has been targeted for not closing the educational achievement gap or preparing America’s students and future workforce to be successful in a global economy. States have failed to adequately prepare teachers to educate Americans, in particular vulnerable populations like English Language Learners (ELL).
Join CHCI Secondary Education Graduate Fellow Blanchi Roblero as she leads an education discussion on how the education system can address the needs of English Language Learners.
