Education track: Education plays an integral role in the continued construction and progression of our society. In addition to academic development, formal and informal institutions of education serve as sites for the development of complex social, cultural, and linguistic skills and identities. The Cambio de Colores conference offers breakout sessions and workshops that explore educational issues, policies, and practices that influence Latino/a, immigrant, and refugee learners of all ages and backgrounds.
