Memo: NSEA Supports Assembly Bill 195

NSEA supports AB 195 to establish rights for English learners and their families to ensure they have access to a high-quality education.
Published: March 23, 2021

NSEA’s Reach for the Stars Foundation and our Instruction and Professional Development Department provides educators across the state support in all areas of educations. We support English as a second language instructors and bilingual educators with the pursuit of National Board certification. We provide micro-credentials to renew the knowledge of educators with English language acquisition professional development.

Educators who are both bilingual or English as a second language certified advocate for their students and their rights. Research on language learners has proven it can take between three to five years to acquire English. NSEA appreciates the classification of language learners in this bill.

ELL /bilingual educators also spend countless hours trying to find a way to ensure that parents and students know their rights in the education system.

Too many times, parents are afraid to come to the school to engage in the education process their child is pursuing. AB 195 will ensure English learners and their parents know their rights.

Educators also know we are losing fellow educators with the pedagogy and experience to assist students on their journey to learn English. We believe that AB 195 is a strong start to supporting educators teaching the acquisition of English to students. The data collected will help staffing and operational decisions within the district to inform staffing. It also will help inform school trustees with a data-driven decision-making processes.
