Mission

We are a coalition of students, parents, teachers, activists, and community members and groups. Restrictive language education policies have resulted in a lack of equitable educational opportunities for language learners in Massachusetts. We believe that language and cultural competence are resources to be invested in and valued, and are essential for a strong economy and a just society. We aspire to increase bilingualism, biliteracy, and multicultural understanding as assets that enhance social and economic growth within a global economy.

Our goals are to…

  • Increase language learning opportunities for learning English, developing and/or maintaining a native/heritage language, or learning a foreign language.
  • Ensure that all learners have equal access to a high quality education and professional opportunities.

Organizations or individuals who support our mission are welcome to join the Language Opportunity Coalition
