On Friday, July 29, Dr. Margaret Friend was invited to address the P3SD meeting—a group of educators, philanthropists, scientists, advocates, business leaders, and public servants. Dr. Friend served on the Panel on Equity of Alignment and Quality making the links from early language acquisition to kindergarten readiness. The audience consisted of individuals deeply committed to improving education quality and access for all of our children, including dual language learners. This meeting precedes the November ballot initiative, Proposition 58, the California Multilingual Education Act, a measure that would allow us to better serve our diverse population and grow a strong and healthy workforce.
