Gaps in Common Core resources for English language learners spark innovation, website reports
from The Times-Picayune
Which group of students has particularly struggled with Common Core? English language learners, The Hechinger Report finds. The non-profit education website reports that the Common Core state standards and its aligned curriculums often aren't translated from English, which poses problems for limited-English speakers and the educators who teach them. In New York's public schools, 216,000 English language learners speak more than 160 languages. And academic performance historically has been low. Their graduation rate, at 31 percent, lags the state average of 75 percent.
