New Report: Teacher Voices: Immigration, Language and Culture
Monday, May 9, 2011
The College Board believes in the power and commitment of teachers. In support of their work, we have released the fifth report in our Teachers Are the Center of Education/Teacher Voices series: Immigration, Language and Culture.
This report, created in partnership with the National Writing Project and Phi Delta Kappa, provides an on-the-ground view of educating immigrant students and second language learners through the lens of six classroom teachers. The report highlights the strengths these students bring to our classrooms and country, the challenges they — teachers and students — face, and provides clear recommendations on changes required to ensure that these students receive the education they need and deserve.
In support of this report, we are also releasing videos that feature each of the six profiled teachers. Learn more about the teachers and their thoughts on the issues and practices of working with ELL and immigrant students.
The Teachers Are the Center of Education/Teacher Voices series highlights the critical importance of teachers, salutes their great work and helps amplify their voices. This nation is now making critical decisions about the future of our education system, including the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. If we are to make the improvements we need, we must be actively guided by the voices of teachers.
