In May 2017, Amaya Garcia reached out to the leadership of the Portland Public Schools and PSU Dual Language Teacher Partnership. In her role as senior researcher at New America—a relatively young public policy think tank, Garcia was interested in learning more about the PPS-PSU partnership. Her goal was to gather first-hand accounts about the partnership and the program that is dedicated to preparing dual language and world language teachers. Her interviews with the leaders of the PPS and PSU Dual Language Teacher Partnership led to the development of the report, The Portland Public Schools and Portland State University Dual Language Teacher Partnership. The report is the second in a series of papers that examines innovative approaches to bilingual teacher preparation across the nation.
