Dean of the College of Public Policy, Dr. Rogelio Saenz, was one of the panelists during the Intercultural Development Research Association (IDRA) Symposium held on Feb. 2, 2015. The panel reflected on key themes and questions raised by the research and explored important implications of the research for education quality and equity for English learners in policy and practice.
This research symposium presented the findings of Dr. Oscar Jimenez-Castellanos, IDRA’s inaugural José A. Cárdenas School Finance Fellow. Dr. Jimenez-Castellanos conducted an important and timely empirical study to examine the amount of supplemental funding above the base funding level that is required to effectively implement appropriate services for English language learners at the secondary level in the State of Texas.
