Join the Latino Policy Forum for the release of its new publication, Shaping our Future: Building a Latino K-12 Education Agenda, and the launch of the first phase of its expanded education platform, focused on the Common Core Standards. 

 

The implementation of these standards marks a massive change for educators in Illinois’ public schools, demanding a more advanced use of the English language for all students in all subjects.  For students already lagging in scholastic achievement, the standards intensify the challenge to master academic English.  It is more important than ever that all teachers be trained on the complexity of language development and how to provide instruction accordingly. 

 

Space is limited. Spanish translation services will be available. For more information, contact Rebecca Vonderlack-Navarro, PhD, rvnavarro@latinopolicyforum.org.
