Educational Excellence and Equity for ELLs.. The National Association for Bilingual Education is more than a professional organization.. Since its founding in 1976, NABE has also been a tireless advocate for language-minority students.. We have worked actively to promote educational excellence and equity for this long-underserved group.. In concrete terms, this has meant:.. Advocacy for federal and state legislation to address the  ...   strong civil-rights policies and aggressive enforcement of the.. Lau v.. Nichols.. decision.. Advocacy against political attacks on language-minority communities, such as the English Only movement and anti-bilingual-education initiatives.. Despite political resistance, we have seen significant progress in all these areas over the years.. However, the school reform landscape has changed, with the advent of the standards-and-goals movement, high-stakes testing, and all-out attacks on public education.. In particular, the.. Bilingual Education Act.. was repealed and replaced by the.. No Child Left Behind Act.. NABE plans to rise to meet these new challenges.. We hope you will return frequently to our Advocacy pages for the latest information on legislative and policy issues affecting English language learners..
