Impact of Immigration and ELL learners in Hawai’i

On January 18th, 2014, HEPC  in collaboration with the College of Education, the William S. Richardson School of Law and the Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work at UHM, hosted a forum to explore the issues with immigration and ELL learners in Hawaii.  Seventy-five participants attended our Forum to explore the impacts of immigration on Hawai’i’s public schools in the form of English Language Learners and current government legislation that supports them. The conference hosted speakers from the HIDOE, a panel of legal scholars, educational researchers and community leaders who discussed the various issues and legal ramifications of the current ELL situation. Our keynote speaker was Dr. Kathryn Davis.
