TESOL Sends Pair of Letters Expressing Concern Over Possible U.S. Department of Education Reorganization

by David Cutler | 05/21/2018
TESOL International Association recently sent a pair of letters to the ​United States Department of Education expressing great concern over the possible reorganization of the  Office of English Language Acquisition(OELA), the office charged with ​guiding state and local education agencies ​as they ​​support English learners.

In a ​letter sent to Secretary DeVos, TESOL stated ​the need for OELA to maintain its current organizational status, outlined the negative impacts that the reorganization of OELA would have ​on English learners and teachers, and made several recommendations for how the department could enhance its support for English learners.

In a separate joint letter, TESOL joined a coalition of 17 other education organizations from around the U.S. to express collective concerns over the department’s plan to potentially restructure OELA.
