MN Multilingual Equity Network: EL-ESSA Policy Brief Launch
June 28, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
To address the disparities that English Learners (ELs) and their families face in the Minnesota education system, CAAL and MnEEP founded the Minnesota Multilingual Equity Network which began a joint project called the Minnesota EL-ESSA Initiative in July 2016. This Initiative created and coordinated conversations within and between advocacy organizations and the students, families, and communities that are the most impacted by the EL policies and practices of Minnesota school districts. Guided by a diverse EL-Stakeholder Advisory Group and with input from researchers, the Minnesota Multilingual Equity Network implemented a responsive community engagement process to develop an equity agenda and specific recommendations for MDE to use when incorporating the educational needs of ELs into Minnesota’s ESSA implementation plan.
This event would be beneficial to community leaders, educators, policy-makers and anyone interested in improving educational outcomes for all students.
