Three Northern California districts gain funding for multilingual education
KALW News shared a radio segment about the Emerging Bilingual Collaborative (EBC) grant which is aimed at supporting the learning of PreK-3rd grade multilingual children in California. Our Executive Director Patricia Lozano was also quoted sharing the importance of supporting multilingual children.
Among the nine awardees are three Northern California school systems, including Oakland Unified School District, Franklin-McKinley School District in San Jose, and the San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools.
Patricia Lozano, Executive Director of the organization Early Edge California, said in a press release that multilingual children, “need support now more than ever with the pandemic creating further inequities in their learning experiences.”
