Dual Language Education of New Mexico’s Vision

New Mexico’s rich linguistic and cultural resources must be developed as assets. Four decades of research provide a road map for developing a multilingual, multicultural citizenry.  Providing an enriched multilingual education combined with high expectations has the greatest potential to close the achievement gap and prepare students for success in the 21st century (Collier & Thomas, 2009; Ramírez et al., 1991; Goldenberg, 2009). In addition to academic and career benefits, bilinguals possess increased cognitive flexibility and enriched problem-solving skills.

DLeNM stands in solidarity with all of our community, no matter the race, gender identity, sexual orientation, creed, or class. We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with compassion and dignity and ALL children deserve, and should receive, equitable access to high-quality education.

DLeNM mantiene una solidaridad firme con toda su comunidad cualquiera que sea su identidad de género, orientación sexual, credo, o estatus social. Creemos que todos merecen ser tratados con compasión y dignidad y que TODOS los niños merecen, y deben recibir, el acceso equitativo a una educación de alta calidad.
