Hello FABE members,
We wanted to share an invitation to tune in tomorrow morning for an important event for all US educators, especially those in bilingual and dual language programs. Tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, the confirmation hearing for Secretary of Education nominee Dr. Miguel Cardona will be streamed live.

Dr. Cardona, a Puerto Rican and a native Spanish speaker, was himself an English language learner when he entered public school in Connecticut. He has been an elementary school teacher, a principal and a university professor. With a masters degree in Bilingual and Bicultural education (as well as an EdD), he would be an articulate and understanding advocate for English language learners and bilingual education.
Please tune in!
