  • Provide professional development pathways for teachers and educational leaders to address the needs of ELs
  • Compile resources to support schools and educational institutions working with ELs
  • Partner with individuals, organizations and institutions that will inform and engage the educational community working with ELs

The Center for Equity for English Learners was established in 2006, with support from Bank of America.
