Education Information

67.3 M

In the United States, it's estimated that more than a quarter of students are immigrants or the children of immigrants. In 2018, 67.3 million U. S. residents spoke a language other than English at their home. Having bilingual teachers in the classroom not only helps students feel more comfortable and at ease, but it also helps to integrate them more easily and efficiently into the school system


Students can’t learn if they aren’t well. Increasingly, that means our students and educators must receive the mental health support they need, and schools must have the resources, staffing, and programs necessary to effectively address the mental health challenges they face.


Research has indicated that for students with disabilities, an inclusive education can have positive long-term effects on almost every aspect of their lives, including their likelihood of enrolling in college and graduating, finding employment, and forming long-term relationships.
