Systems leaders play critically important roles in multilingual learner education. Not only do they support implementation of federal civil rights law, but they also elevate multilingual learners in equity-driven systems change. We work with state and local leaders to design systems that foster shared responsibility for multilingual learner students, families, and educators.
Our mission is to bridge connections between research, policy, and practice in order to build leaders' capacity to promote shared responsibility for multilingual learner education across state and local education agencies -- all with the goal of improving multilingual learner's access to high-quality language and content instruction.
We partner with state leaders to design continuous improvement cycles around pressing problems of practice in statewide multilingual learner education. We build on the research base to collaboratively develop and implement improvement strategies, and to generate evidence-based resources that guide state leaders' work.
