How will schools measure English learners' 'COVID-slide' learning loss?
from Education Week
Educators are worried about students losing ground while school buildings are closed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The so-called coronavirus — or "COVID slide" may be especially troublesome for English language learners, the 5 million students still learning English in the nation's K-12 schools. Many of them could fall farther behind because of a confluence of factors, including limited access to the internet and the language support services they often receive in school.
