Research Advisory Board

About the Research Advisory Board

Internationals Network for Public Schools’ Research Advisory Board comprises distinguished scholars, researchers and experts in education policy who work closely with schools and communities to better foster equity for immigrant and multilingual learners. Their research has strengthened the field to spur improvements in policy and practice for the multilingual learners served across Internationals Network’s schools and academies. The Board members are critical friends and advisors who provide scholarly input to Internationals’ work. The RAB  is vital to the development, growth, and on-going improvement of Internationals’ core work: school development and support, professional development,  policy and advocacy in support of transforming education for multilingual learners. The board provides guidance, support, expertise, knowledge and strategic input for our work.
