Event description

Description

4.8 million students in the U.S. are English Learners. Whether they were born here or made their way to America, these students face a myriad of challenges in school. They must become proficient in English while simultaneously understanding and mastering academic content. They may need to learn a new culture and a new school system. And they may be without their families and other social supports. Educators have asked for assistance in their efforts to improve the academic outcomes and overall well-being of English Learners.

The Center for Education Equity @ MAEC has partnered with the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, Philadelphia, and the Robert M. Bell Center for Civil Rights in Education at Morgan State University to bring you the second in a series of Equity Breakfast Institutes.

Realizing the Dream: Promoting Success for English Learners will offer workshops and panels that discuss:

  • English Learners with a Suspected Learning Disability

  • The Unique Needs of Newcomers

  • The Civil Rights of ELs

  • Disproportionality in the Discipline of ELs

  • Academic Tracking and Ability Grouping of ELs

  • Bullying & Harassment of ELs

Join us as we dive deeper to explore issues that affect one of our most vulnerable student populations.
