Commentary: For poor schools to succeed, more effort is needed to help those learning English
from The New York Times
Carola Suárez-Orozco, a professor of education at UCLA, writes: "English learners are 9.3 percent of all K-12 students in the United States. And in states with substantial immigrant populations the percentage is higher — 22.7 percent in California, for example. English learners require more academic support, since they are mastering both academic English and the academic content of their course, but they are often underserved."
