Changing Suburbs Institute®
Our communities and schools are changing.
They’re more diverse than ever — culturally, linguistically, and economically — and
the ways we need to educate our children are changing as a result.
How can we better educate students who are culturally and linguistically diverse?
How can their parents get a better understanding of the U.S. educational system and
become more involved in their children's academic careers? How can schools gain access
to the information they need to make informed decisions about their changing student
populations, and work together to respond to the challenges they face?
