How long does it take ELLs to develop English proficiency?
from Education Week
From Aug. 13:
A study of seven high-poverty districts in the Seattle metropolitan area found that it took nearly four years for elementary school-aged English language learners to develop English proficiency. Researchers from Regional Education Laboratories Northwest tracked nearly 18,000 language learner students in some of the lowest-performing school districts in Washington state. The districts are participants in the Road Map Project, a cradle-to-career program that aims to close the opportunity gap for low-income and minority students.
