|English learners (ELs) are the fastest growing segment of the K-12 population.
But ELs and their families-who are in the process of learning English
and navigating an often-unfamiliar education system-may not have a powerful
enough voice to articulate their needs. Consequently, all teachers and
administrators must advocate for this all-important diverse group of students
who will become tomorrow's workforce. This book demystifies the techniques
of advocacy for ELs. No educator can miss out on this essential book.
Dr. Staehr Fenner led a virtual seminar based on the book. It's titled "Advocating for English Learners: Sharing the Responsibility and the Joy."
