※This posting is a summary of the discussion that took place in the networking session at the Coalition Conference in 2022

Topics discussed at the breakout rooms were as the following. Three participants actively discussed and were also concerned about the introduction of Heritage Language Schools and the obstacles which have been hampering and require immediate attention to be resolved.

1- The dearth of funding for heritage language schools by government legislative branches.
2- The preventive feelings of parents and some schools to introduce themselves as members of heritage languages because of public judgment.
3- Lack of knowledge of the existing heritage schools and, therefore, their problems.
4- Lack of information on how to establish heritage language schools by those who are interested in doing so.
5- Encouraging heritage language representatives to be more effective and active by creating a platform to introduce themselves and their publications on various heritage language topics and issues.
6- Creating stronger bonds with new and old heritage language schools to share perspectives, ideas, visions, and recommendations.
7- Arranging international webinars amongst heritage language schools on various topics of interest and benefit.
