Mission Statement:

Through a balanced program of research, professional development, and public education, WIABE supports and encourages the implementation of educational policies and effective bilingual-bicultural programs that promote equal educational opportunities and academic excellence for all language minority students. WIABE firmly believes that only enrichment (additive) forms of bilingual education ensure that language minority students are successful academically and develop age-appropriate English proficiency while, at the same time maintaining a sense of pride in culture and diversity.
