    1/1/08 - Ron Glass

    It is probably never easy to have a deep conversation with another person; each person’s hopes, fears, anxieties, doubts, dreams, and many other powerful feelings, conscious and unconscious, easily get in the way of honest and full expression. To have a deep conversation with a stranger, or with whole groups of strangers and even an entire community, can seem impossible.To talk openly and honestly about our experiences of schooling is equally challenging. Some of our most significant...

    1/5/09 - Eugene Garcia, Bryant Jensen

    "Dual Language (DL) programs are relatively new in the United States. After the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in 1994, a large federal effort related to the education of dual language students was launched. It was at this point that the US Department of Education promoted the development of educational programs whose goal was dual language competency for both language minority students speaking a non-English home language as well as for students whose...

    Effective and promising summer learning programs and approaches for economically-disadvantaged children and youth

    1/30/09 - Mary Terzian, Kristin Anderson Moore, Kathleen Hamilton

    "Children and youth who reside in economically disadvantaged households and who live in lowresource, urban neighborhoods are more likely to lose ground in math and reading over the summer than their middle- and upper-class peers. These children and youth often come from ethnic minority backgrounds. This achievement gap widens as children grow older, creating social and academic inequities. Summer learning programs are an important strategy for narrowing the achievement gap."

    English language proficiency is critical to academic achievement in the United States. For several decades, educators and policymakers have explored strategies to ensure that English language learner students have access to rigorous academic content as much as non–English language learner students. Educating English language learner students is a challenge that has become a civil rights issue and a topic of federal legislation. In 1968, Congress passed the Bilingual Education Act...

  • Family and Community Engagement Survey

    1/1/02 - Rodriguez, R.G., Villarreal, A., Cortez, J.D.

    Families can have an important, positive impact on the school’s ability to deliver quality edu- cation when they are valued, their contributions are sought and integrated into the school decision making, and collaboratively plan and deliver services aimed at higher student achieve- ment. Families represent a valuable resource that should be factored into the educational equation. A dialogue between families and educators should be established to arrive at a shared accountability approach...
