Preparing Multilingual Learners for College & Career Success

Preparing Multilingual Learners for College & Career Success

March 1, 2022, 4:00 - 4:30 PM ET


How do we prepare multilingual learners for their next steps after high school? What unique barriers do multilingual learners face when discovering and choosing a career path? What federal and state policies are alleviating –or exacerbating– these challenges?

In this 30-minute conversation hosted by the Center for Applied Linguistics, we look at key insights from the research on multilingual learners and successful transition from high school into college and/or the workforce. Special guests Dr. Yasuko Kanno, Dr. Ester de Jong, and Dr. Keira Ballantyne frame this policy discussion around equity in practice, centering the focus of policymakers, researchers, and practitioners on multilingual learners through an assets-based equity-based lens.
