Schools have a responsibility to provide ALL children a great education, including those that are English language learners.
After graduating from their Parent Champion Circle this spring, Wilson Charter School parents launched a new campaign for Language Justice. Schools have a responsibility to provide ALL children a great education, including those that are English language learners. The first phase of the campaign began this month with a city-wide school survey. So far, 35 out of 72 schools have completed surveys about language services and programs available to their students and families. The survey indicates the level to which schools are providing ethical and consistent translation and interpretation support, accurate reporting of student progress and services, and proactive strategies for addressing issues such as bullying and law enforcement presence on campus. Parents have arrived at school sites with the survey, and asked each survey question directly to staff. Thanks to all the hard working parents and a special shout out to Mavet who has been working closely on this!
