English language learners are the latest focus of the Department of Education under ESSA
from Education World
At first, the Department of Education released a guidance to advise schools on how to use the Every Student Succeeds Act to best meet the needs of foster youth. Then, it released a similar guidance regarding the educational rights of homeless students. Now, its latest guidance is addressing the needs of English learners and how ESSA is to be used to meet those needs. "The guidance is an effort to ensure that students who are English learners receive the high-quality services they need to be college and career ready," said the Department of Education in its introduction.
