NABE announces a new membership initiative headed by the leadership of Dr. Virginia Gonzalez (Professor, Literacy Studies and Language (LSLS) Program, School of Education, University of Cincinnati) and Dr. Josefina Villamil-Tinajero (Dean and Professor, College of Education, University of Texas at El Paso) as Editors-in-Chief of the NABE Journal of Research and Practice (NJRP), and in direct charge of the Position Papers and Reflections section. This publication of the NJRP is a wonderful opportunity for our NABE family and will continue to bring relevance, stature and demonstrated leadership for our national organization. The NJRP will also create access to exemplary practice and validated research in the field for use by NABE family and friends. This initiative will also add to the conversations on improving the quality of education and fostering systemic changes for our ELL's and Emergent English Learners, particularly in light of the implementation of new national Common Core State Standards and the tenacious focus on high stakes standardized testing now being implemented across the country. The NABE Board of Directors is very proud and eager to support these efforts and extends congratulations and best wishes to the NJRP Editors-in-Chief and the very distinguished editorial board for their interest and dedication in making a difference in the extraordinary work that we all do for our children and community every day.
The following "Call for Paper" for the NJRP is now in effect. Please follow the instructions in the attached link to submit your manuscript or research paper for publication in the next issue of the NABE Journal of Research and Practice. Please feel free to get in touch directly with Dr. Virginia Gonzalez at (gonzalva at ucmail dot uc dot edu) for further information.
