Florida gathering input on new English language proficiency standards
from Education Week
It appears Florida will soon make a choice between sticking with ELPA 21 — a group of 11 states it joined in 2012 to develop new English language proficiency standards and assessments — or ditching it for WIDA, a larger consortium of states that already shares proficiency standards and assessments for English language learners. Recently, Florida education officials started asking English language learner educators and advocates across the state to review and provide their feedback on the two different sets of English language proficiency standards.
