As a group of Harvard graduate students, we came together at HGSE attempting to educate this community about the many issues affecting undocumented families.

English Learners (ELs) comprise one of the largest achievement gaps in the U.S. While English Learners have received a lot of attention recently in legislation, educators and community members know little about these policy changes and educational supports that will help this group thrive. Due to language barriers and cultural differences, EL families are often left without a voice in advocating for change. Leaders in education, therefore, need to be equipped to advocate for this group. In pursuit of preparing future leaders in education, the mission of Leading for English Learners is to lead conversations across HGSE around EL students. We advocate for equitable opportunities for ELs by opening dialogues from multiple angles, from administration to policy to teaching.
