US officials step up efforts to help students learning English
from Los Angeles Times
Concerned that too many public schools are failing to adequately help students learning English, federal officials unveiled guidelines on the legal requirements to identify and support them. The U.S. Departments of Justice and Education, which jointly issued the guidelines, have increased their enforcement of laws passed more than four decades ago that require such services amid growing numbers of students who are struggling with English. Nationwide, such students number about 5 million — about 9 percent of all public school pupils — and they have increased in most states between 2002 and 2012.
