Whatever else you think about the Common Core State Standards, they were definitely designed for English speakers. That means that anyone who doesn't speak English as a first language is already at a disadvantage. We are seeing the emergence of some curricula to provide basic Common Core help in Spanish, but even that is very limited, and outside of that, there is zero support for the growing populations of immigrants who speak languages such as Arabic, Cantonese, Somali, Ukrainian and Tagalog. Federal and state governments mandate that schools deliver suitable access to the Common Core for all students, but they are not providing the tools that educators need to support English language learners. more
