Yesterday, I wrote about how the Trump Administration’s recent immigration and travel executive order is a sizeable threat to TESOL and to American Higher Education. I stand by those comments. And, my upset hasn’t diminished; even if I am thousands of miles away and am not as awash in the American news cycle.
This morning, I woke up to an email from the TESOL president addressing the executive order. If you’re a member of TESOL International, I would urge you to attend to these conversations as they occur on MyTESOL. If you’re going to the conference, take the time to speak up and to speak out. I plan on doing what I can from here in China.
