Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Advising for Multilingual Learners

As educators, everyone is striving to be anti-racist, yet we all inherently have bias and experience privilege and oppression differently. We must examine and confront conditional, behavioral, and systemic threats that detract from the greatness of our ML/ ELL students and limits their postsecondary options. The NYCDOE has over 142,000 ML/ELL students, with almost 23% of them identifying as Asian. When advising students on the courses they should take, colleges they should apply for, and careers they should pursue, we must uphold high expectations and introduce our Multilingual Learners to a wide range of possibilities.
