Overview of Language Development & Bilingual Education in California K-12 Schools

In 2012 the State of California was the first in the nation to adopt a State Seal of Biliteracy, a seal awarded to students graduating high school that demonstrate a high level of academic proficiency in English and another language. Since then, more than 25 other states have similar programs. Professor Karen Cadiero-Kaplan had the honor and privilege of working with the California Department of Education (CDE) from 2012-2015 in leading the implementation of the Seal of Biliteracy. Across the nation California has been a leader in developing standards and programs that foster biliteracy development from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. Part of Dr. Cadiero-Kaplan’s leadership was spearheading the adoption of innovative English Language Development Standards, which take into consideration both aspects of language acquisition and child and adolescent development alongside academic curriculum.
