Recently, the series spoke with Ben Le, an IES Predoctoral Fellow at New York University and a member of the IES-funded R&D Center on the Success of English Learners (CSEL).
Le's research, a focal point of the conversation, delved into English learners' needs and emphasized race and ethnicity's influence in fostering inclusive classrooms that nurture student success. The discussion explored the intersection of race, language, and education, shedding light on marginalized students' experiences in NYC public schools.
