Event Description:
The Suffolk Philosophy Society and the Philosophy Department present an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series:

Common Core State Standards and Multilingual Education:  Why Not?
Nicholas Raby, Suffolk University, Ethics and Public Policy Program


Abstract:  The Common Core State Standards are a set of learning goals for U.S. students (K-12) intended to guide their consistent, incremental development in preparation for college and career life in a global economic society. At present, standards cover English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. Given the reasons for their implementation, evidence suggests that the addition of a comprehensive multilingual educational program is just as—if not more—apt to prepare students than the current system. I draw from recent legislation, psychological research, and cultural mediations to argue that the present system cannot achieve its own goals without integrating a multilingual program. 


Refreshments will be served.
