Abstract:

North Carolina experienced a 498 percent growth of the Hispanic/Latino population from 1990 to 2000, the largest such growth in the U.S. (Pew Center, 2005). Forty-four percent of the state’s Hispanic population was born in Mexico. Overall, North Carolina’s foreign-born population has grown from less than 1.5 percent in 1990 to 5.5 percent in 2006. This demographic transformation—largely shaped by international migration—has resulted in a 470 percent growth of school-age English Language Learners (ELLs), from 1994 to 2004.
North Carolina’s professional teacher standards were revised in 2008, and demonstrate a shift, requiring the acquisition of cross-cultural and global competencies for future educators.
This paper will present a case study from Northwestern North Carolina, where service-learning and bi-national educational programs—offered through campus-community partnerships—enhanced a teacher training program for future elementary school teachers. Furthermore, diverse learners and community members were served beyond the classroom with the support of school and community leaders. Villalba et al. (2007) note that educators in Southeastern schools have been ill-equipped to address barriers to the academic, personal, and social development of Latino students. Findings from this paper will offer methods to overcome these barriers, while engaging future leaders in “real-world” experience with social justice and educational equity.
