Community Voices Research Project

The purpose of this project is to find out more about the education needs of diverse language communities. We hope this information will help UNCG faculty, teachers, and school professionals better understand how to improve education services for children and families from diverse language communities. We have conducted 2-hour focus group meetings with various diverse language communities and have learned a lot from our community members.
