In this volume, scholars and researchers present their latest findings and concerns regarding the impact of Arizona’s restrictive language policy on critical areas for English learners and diverse students, with an emphasis on how the policy influences teacher preparation and classroom practice. The publication focuses on the decade-long implementation of Structured English Immersion (SEI) in Arizona, which mandates that English be the primary language of instruction with English learners. The book provides a unique contribution to the study of language policy and education for English language learners. With solid evidence carefully linked to theory, the contributors address a wide range of issues with recommendations for approaches that promote expansive language education policies that build on the home languages of all students.

The publication includes a foreword by CAL President Terrence Wiley and a chapter by CAL staff member Sarah Catherine K. Moore (“SEI as Policy Into Practice”).
