The University of California Linguistic Minority Research Institute
(UC LMRI) and the Arizona State University Linguistic Minority
Research Initiative (ASU LMRI) of the Mary Lou Fulton College of
Education announce a Call for Papers on the topic of "Restrictive
Language Policies and Educational Outcomes for English Learners:  10
Years After Proposition 227".

2008 marks the 10-year anniversary of California's Proposition 227,
which dramatically curtailed the use of primary language instruction
in California. Similar propositions were subsequently passed in
Arizona and Massachusetts.

UC LMRI and ASU LMRI are accepting papers that examine the impact of
Proposition 227 and the similar propositions in both Arizona and
Massachusetts, to what extent they have resulted in the improvement of
education and educational outcomes for EL students, and to consider
how the field of education should proceed in attempting to improve
academic outcomes for these students. Proposals that consider the
impact of the propositions on school, family, and community contexts
are also welcomed. Accepted papers are to be presented at a two-day
conference to be held May 2-3, 2008 in Sacramento, California. Papers
are welcome from both academics and educators, as long as they are
based on either academic research or teacher (action) research. The
deadline for proposals has been extended through January 11, 2008.
Authors of accepted papers will be notified by February 1, 2008 and
final papers will be due April 1, 2008.

Selected presenters (and up to two co-presenters) will have their
conference registration fees waived. Travel and lodging are the
responsibility of the presenters.

Prospective presenters should send a two-page (single-spaced)
prospectus that includes a brief discussion of the topic, research
literature, methods, and significance of the paper, and an abstract
(100-150 words), along with the following information: Presentation
Title, Name of Presenter and Brief Bio/CV, Title, Institution, Mailing
Address, Email Address, and Phone Number by January 11, 2008 to
Conference Coordinator, UC LMRI at: grants at lmri.ucsb.edu. Notification
will be made by February 1, 2008. Completed papers must be submitted
to UC LMRI no later than April 1, 2008.
