Study: Charter schools boost English language learner rolls
from Boston Herald
Charter schools have increasingly enrolled more English language learners, shattering an argument from the No on 2 campaign that charters don't serve the same populations, a new report from the Pioneer Institute finds. While in 2009 Boston charters enrolled only 2 percent of students who were still learning the English language compared with the district's 19 percent, the enrollment jumped after a state law mandated district schools share families' mailing addresses and required charters to provide recruitment and retention plans with the state.
