Bilingual Education Research SIG 12


Advocacy Working Group

This newly restarted working group will explore the various forms of advocacy of researchers, teachers, community members, families, and students in relation to multilingual learners, educational programs, instructional practices, and policies. We are committed to collaboration and lifting up  the voices of students, families, community members, teachers, educational staff and researchers, and all stakeholders. We believe that together we can learn innovative ways to engage in advocacy efforts, as well as expand our reach by providing at the local, state and federal levels.
