New Mexico is one of 48 states that offer a biliteracy seal to high school graduates to recognize their proficiency in a non-English language. Through the Southwest English Learners Research Partnership, REL Southwest partnered with a large urban district in New Mexico to study the characteristics and college readiness of students who earn different types of biliteracy seals (state, district, and global seals) and whether earning a seal improves college outcomes. This infographic provides an overview of the study and highlights key findings.
