The Minnesota Education Equity Partnership and the East African Student to Teacher (EAST) Program in the Education Department at Augsburg University partnered to research, write, and publish a report on Somali student achievement in Minnesota. As you may know, Somali students and families are a major constituency in some Minnesota schools and districts, and Somali is the third most spoken language in the state.
We invite you, colleagues, families, and friends to our launch event where we will present an overview of the report and will have copies for you to take and share with your communities.
Thursday May 24
Hagfors Center, Augsburg University
Details and registration information are listed here. Because it will be Ramadan, refreshments will be refrained until sunset when we serve iftar, the meal to break Ramadan fast.
