Lessons from Texas on the relationship between school funding and the academic achievement of ELLs
Recently, Texas' Intercultural Development Research Association held a research symposium titled "Securing Educational Equity and Excellence for English Language Learners." The symposium was the inaugural event for IDRA's José A. Cárdenas School Finance Fellow Program, which supports promising school finance scholars' engagement with research on how to secure equity and excellence for all public school students. The 2014 fellow was Dr. Oscar Jimenez-Castellanos, an associate professor at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University, who presented his research on school funding and academic achievement for secondary English language learners in Texas.
