Schools often fail to educate, support English language learners
from Education Week
Schools across the United States often provide substandard instruction and social-emotional support to the nation's English language learners — and fail to properly train the educators who teach them, a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine finds. Noting that limited English proficiency remains a substantial barrier to academic success for millions of children in K-12 schools, the study explores how under-resourced schools and under-prepared educators can hinder efforts to help those students learn and master English.
