More teachers need training for English language learners
from The Sun Chronicle
When school resumes for thousands of public school students next week, children won't be the only ones reporting to class. Almost 100 Attleboro and North Attleboro teachers, and dozens more in other districts, will be going to school in their spare time to earn a special credential in teaching non-English-speaking students. Core teachers in elementary and secondary schools are required to obtain the training as part of the state's RETELL initiative (for Rethinking Equity and Teaching for English Language Learners). Classes will be held outside of normal school hours and will be paid for by the state.
