Selected recommendations on ESEA reauthorization regarding English language working group on ELL Policy
from ELL Policy
English language learners comprise almost 10 percent of the U.S. student population at any given time. Many more students have been ELLs at some point in their schooling. In four states (Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and California) the percentages are significantly higher, ranging from 15 to 24 percent of the state's students. Moreover, many states in the Southeast and Midwest have experienced explosive ELL growth. Since the last re-authorization of ESEA, the numbers of ELLs have increased substantially, and growth is more broadly distributed across the nation.
