Organizations for language advocacy
JNCL-NCLIS (Joint National Committee for Languages - National Council for Languages and International Studies) and CERCLL (Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy) are two organizations that promote the advocacy and study of languages. JNCL-NCLIS is based in Washington DC and represents all fields of language professionals. This organization raises awareness of the need for language study. Language teachers would be interested in the work that this organization does to promote the study of French. CERCLL provides valuable research and resources for language teaching. Check out both of these organizations before the school year starts. Sign up for the JNCL-NCLIS newsletter on their site. Both organizations are on Facebook. See what you can do now to ask your senator to support the World Languages Advancement Act (WLAA), an amendment to the Every Child Achieves Act of 2015. Be an active advocate for our profession and our work as language educators.
