ELL accountability could complicate Florida's bid for waiver extension
from Education Week
Two years and two education commissioners ago, many Florida school superintendents and advocates for English language learners pushed back hard against changes to the state's accountability system that were at the heart of the waiver the state had received from portions of the No Child Left Behind Act. Chiefly, district leaders and advocates were upset that the performance of English language learners on state tests in math and reading would be factored into schools' accountability after such students had only had one year of instruction.
