Three decades after order, Denver schools still struggle to teach English
from The Denver Post
Three decades after federal courts ordered Denver Public Schools to better serve English learners, its efforts remain plagued by inconsistencies and a large number of students who haven't shown progress in learning the language. The district is two years into its latest plan to educate English learners, who make up nearly 35 percent of the district's 90,000 students. But based on the most recent annual tests, nearly one in three of the district's English learners who have been in the system for the past two years failed to make progress on their English skills.
