Linguistic and Cultural Equity in Dual Language Education

Presented at: New York State Association for Bilingual Education Annual Conference

Educational equity is a central concept in dual language education. In this presentation, I will share findings from a recently-completed research project that explored the definitions and interpretations of equity in a diverse group of fifteen dual language teachers and administrators from across the United States. The findings illustrate program- and classroom-level policies and practices that contribute to or inhibit the creation of an equitable learning environment for linguistically diverse students.
