The National Center on Cultural and Linguistic Responsiveness will provide research-based strategies for working with children who speak languages other than English in classrooms and other learning environments.
The goals of the Center are as follows:
- Promote research-based educational practices
- Ensure that linguistically and culturally diverse preschool children and their families receive optimal support
- Conduct national training events to advance understanding of how culture and dual language development in children affect learning
