    Washington – Since 1975, the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) has been a national non-profit, non-partisan, education membership organization in Washington, D.C. working to advocate for educational equity and excellence for bilingual/multilingual students in a global society.
    NABE has over 20 national and international affiliates working to improve instructional practices for our nation’s 4.7 million Dual Language and English Language Learners. NABE is committed to provide bilingual educators with more high-quality professional development opportunities; secure adequate funding for programs serving Bilingual/Multilinguals and English Learners; and keep the rights of language-minority Americans clearly in focus as states and communities move forward with educational reforms. NABE and its coalition partners remain very concerned about the crisis in teacher diversity for our burgeoning population of bilingual/multilingual students with only 20 percent of the teaching force reflecting this diversity.
