Florida board adopts new English-language-proficiency standards
from Education Week
After a recent vote by the state board of education, Florida has adopted a new set of standards to guide the language instruction of its 250,000 English-language learners. The board approved Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart's recommendation that the state adopt common-core aligned English-language-proficiency standards by WIDA, a group of 35 states that share the standards, as well as English-language-proficiency assessments.
