Simultaneous Education: What is it? How does it Impact Student Achievement?

Parents of English language learners (ELLs) are disadvantaged when helping their children in school because they often do not speak English. Many immigrant parents desire to learn English, yet research shows adult English programs have high attrition rates. This session reviews a study that evaluated parents who successfully studied English. Learn about why these parents had success and its impact on their child’s academic achievement. Participants will learn about simultaneous education (SE), how to create programs to encourage SE, to recognize roadblocks when immigrant parents return to school, and new ways to encourage school-to home partnerships.
