TESOL Policy Outlook: National & Local Policies Affecting Immigrant Learners

Join us for a session with John Segota, TESOL’s Associate Executive Director for Public Policy.

Now that the 2016 election has concluded, where do things stand with the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act? What will happen in terms of comprehensive immigration reform? What else in education policy is impacting ELLs and the TESOL field? This session will present an overview of the current state of affairs in Washington, DC, and provide an update on national education policy.
