The California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) is a nonprofit advocacy organization established in 1976 with a mission to promote equity and quality educational achievement for students from diverse racial, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds. These students experience language barrier challenges that limit them from fully becoming part of the California educational system.
With a membership base of 5,000 and more than 60 chapters/affiliates, CABE is committed to being the premier source of professional development for educators and parents striving to help students undertaking English learning courses. Additionally, CABE works closely with legislators and policymakers to promote educational equity and availability of sufficient resources for English learners. To date, CABE has contributed to the successful passing of key legislation to increase resources for English language development. The California Association for Bilingual Education is also part of numerous educational, community, and business partnerships to help boost the standards of English training.
