States may move closer to uniform way of identifying ELLs
from Education Week
The widespread adoption of the Common Core Standards and the imminent rollout of shared content assessments is pushing states to find common ground in yet another dimension of schooling: how best to serve the growing population of English language learners. With a just-released set of recommendations from the Council of Chief State School Officers to help guide them, most states are now set to embark on an effort to bring more uniformity to identifying who English learners are and when those students are no longer in need of language instruction. The goal is to move all states to a more consistent playing field over the next four or five years.
