Introduction

Educators, researchers, and practitioners are called to examine issues surrounding identification, assessment, and instruction of multilingual learners with diverse educational needs. In the history of the United States of America, Supreme Court rulings have impacted the dynamic of education. Legislation and litigation provide a historical overview and provide space for the following topics to be discussed: (1) Disability Critical Race Theory (DisCrit), (2) Identification, assessment, and instruction of dual-identified learners; (3) Providing culturally and linguistically responsive instruction for all learners; (4) Paradigmatic shifts in the culture of schooling; (5) Family engagement & involvement; (6) Examining the cultural competence of educational leadership; (7) Social emotional learning; (8) Social justice post Covid 19; (9) Culturally responsive/sustaining pedagogy; (10) Special needs, learning disability, and giftedness; and (11) Digital equity - online learning for students with disabilities (e.g., technology accessibility, content accessibility).

Objective

White Supremacy, Ableism, and Oral Language fluency are dominant cultures in the United States. These problematic 'norms' are perpetuating the school to prison pipeline and lead to mental health crises in students of all ages. This book will be written by educational researchers who are in the classroom while serving as a researchers. The book will highlight research based ableist, racist, and oral language leaning practices from teachers who are 'living it,' and then offer practical - research based - solutions and calls to action. Each chapter must be connected to a supreme court ruling that led to education change.

Target Audience

This book will use Supreme Court ruling cases in the United States of America to show a timeline of progression for the inclusion of culturally linguistically and cognitively diverse learners. The text will focus on three large categories: on culture, linguistics, and cognitive ability and how these three main things show up in education today, and what it means for learners in 2020. Within these three main sections, teachers who are in the classroom will share the stories of what is going on with them, how legislation affects them, and the reality of their students today. All teacher stories will be then backed by research, and teachers will offer action steps (supported by research).
