Dual-language teachers, students face consequences of online learning
Our Executive Director Patricia Lozano spoke with Carolina Garibay from Illinois Public Media to discuss Dual Language Learners (DLLs) and their challenges with online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 has also emphasized the importance of enrolling kids in dual-language education and keeping them enrolled, said Patricia Lozano, executive director of Early Edge California, an advocacy organization.
Part of this involves urging government leaders to fund dual-language programs, she said.
“We need to really prioritize enrollment of dual-language learners,” she said. “And at the state and the federal level, keep advocating for funds for professional development, because though those adults in the classroom need the resources.”
