GAO finds: Many charters not reporting English learners
from Education Week
A recent report from the Government Accountability Office has found that over a third of charter schools in 2010-2011 did not report the number of English language learners in their data collections for the federal government. About 37 percent of the data collected from charter schools left the field where the number of ELL students was to be recorded blank, the GAO found. And while a blank field could mean that the charter did not have any ELL students, because of the high number of blank fields, the GAO suspects that it is a result of nonreporting instead.
