Mandatory ELL training for all teachers
from Medford Transcript
Teachers today have a lot to juggle with prep time, correcting homework and parent conferences, to name a few of their many responsibilities. So it's hard to blame any educators who felt stressed in 2011 when the federal government mandated English language learner training for all core academic teachers in the state. The state's Department of Elementary and Secondary Education had been offering teachers training on techniques ELL specialists utilize in the classroom in order to more effectively develop the English skills of non-native English speakers, but the training sessions were voluntary and often poorly attended.
