Richard A. Carranza, Houston ISD Superintendent, has been named as the 2017 Public Education Honoree by the Texas Association for Bilingual Education (TABE).
In a letter, TABE President Ana Coca expressed: “On behalf of the TABE Executive Board and the entire state membership, I want to congratulate you. This award is given every year to individuals whose hard work and dedication have produced positive change in the field of bilingual education. Your advocacy for Texas students, especially the more than one million English language learners, and your support of our immigrant students and DREAMERS is a model for all educators to follow.”
The award ceremony will be held tomorrow, Friday 20th at McAllen, TX, during TABE’s annual conference Biliteracy: Construyendo puentes y uniendo culturas. “Events such as this serve to further spread the spirit of unity, especially as it pertains to public education,” she wrote.
