Civil rights officials: Texas charter school operator excluded ELLs
from Education Week
The U.S. Department of Education has hammered out a deal to address concerns that English language learner students and students with disabilities were underrepresented in schools run by the largest charter school operator in Texas. Investigators with the Education Department's office for civil rights found that Harmony Public Schools' admissions officials enrolled students with disabilities and those with limited English proficiency at roughly half the rate of nearby traditional public schools.
