Informing Public Scholarship on Multilingual and English Language Learners: Understanding Federal Education Policies and Data

Sun, April 10, 8:15 to 10:15am, Marriott Marquis, Floor: Level Four, Liberty Salon L

Session Type: Symposium


This symposium explores the recursive, iterative interaction between education policy and data for English language learners (ELLs) in the three segments. In the first segment, one speaker discusses the civil rights and landmark legal decisions, while the other focuses on federal policies, programs, and accountability to ensure equity in education for ELLs. The first discussant highlights the importance of understanding federal policies by education researchers. Following three speakers presenting a wide range of ELL data collected by the federal agencies, the second discussant comments on the federal data available to second language researchers. In the final segment, the chair facilitates a discussion to explore how federal data informs policy and how legal decisions and federal policies can affect education research.
