Are school turnaround efforts overlooking English learners?
from Education Week
The unique learning needs of English language learners enrolled in low-performing schools that were targeted for dramatic improvements under a federal school turnaround program were largely overlooked, at least in the early phases of implementation, a new evaluation concludes. In an ongoing review of the Obama administration's $4.6 billion School Improvement Grant program, the Institute of Education Sciences found that the needs of second-language learners received "only moderate or limited attention" in the early-to-midway stages of the schools' turnaround initiatives.
