From the Vision: English learners are taught by effective, well-prepared, and culturally responsive educators who hold them to high standards and have the materials and professional learning they need to advance students' academic and linguistic development simultaneously.
School administrators ensure that ELs have equitable access to effective educators (e.g., using DESE's Student Learning Experience report).
School administrators conduct recruitment efforts focused on hiring and retaining educators who are well prepared (e.g., by education, training, and experience) to teach culturally and linguistically diverse students.
School administrators ensure that all educators have access to curricular materials, professional learning opportunities and other resources that support them in delivering culturally responsive instruction.
