How can Mandarin immersion programs recruit and retain African-American students?

November 3, 2014

The amazing Jamila Nightingale at Parents of African American Students Studying Chinese, is holding a forum for school administrator on Nov. 13 on how to recruit and retain African-American students in Chinese immersion schools. Make sure your school’s administrators (if they’re anywhere in the Bay area) get there.

Before the forum, Jamila is having a conference call to hear from parents about these issues, to make sure that their opinions, concerns and voices are included in the information being presented to administrators. Check out the PAASSC web site to get involved in the call on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014.

And then make sure your school’s administrators get involved.

    There is a new MIP program at King Elementary in Portland PPS with great support and teachers which are taking on this very same issue, and so far the results are looking very positive. This may be worth looking at much closer, who is involved and how its put together can be very important for success.
