Actionable Strategies to Expand and Enhance ESOL Services in Massachusetts

July 24, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 10:45 am

| Free

 

Please join MassINC, the UMass Donahue Institute, and English for New Bostonians for a rich conversation on how the Commonwealth’s ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) delivery system can respond strategically to the growth in immigration, labor market change, and new modes of instruction coming out of the pandemic. The forum will include a look at findings from new MassINC-UMass Donahue Institute research and a discussion on how we position each region of the state to build an innovative ESOL delivery system.
