ACLU: Thousands of English learners denied services in California
from Education Week
More than 20,000 English learners in California are not receiving English language instruction that is required under state and federal law, according to civil rights lawyers who are threatening to sue the state education agency over the matter. The American Civil Liberties Union of California demanded that state officials take action against 251 school districts that it says are not providing English language acquisition services to ELLs enrolled in their schools. Those districts include Los Angeles Unified, the state's largest, with roughly 670,000 students.
