Grant to help teachers with student language barriers

The Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and the College of Education and Human Development have received $1.8 million from the U.S. Department of Education to continue and expand efforts to better prepare current and future teachers of children who speak no English, or limited English, or even Franco-American or Native populations whose culture is embedded in language.  The project also will study the impact of its teacher training efforts and contribute to a growing body of scholarship on STEM and ESL education through a longitudinal study.  A news release has more.
