TABE’s mission is to promote the implementation of educational policies and effective bilingual-bi-cultural programs that promote equal educational opportunity for bilingual and ESL students. It’s the largest bilingual education conference in Texas, and organizers expect more than 1,500 bilingual/ESL educators and administrators to attend.

We talk with TABE’s executive director, Maria Guadalupe Arreguin-Anderson, about how bilingual programs have changed in Houston and across Texas and what programs she’d like to see more of in Houston-area schools.
