Learning English, and Math

| 1 Comment

"School newcomer centers," which educate English language learners who have recently arrived in this country, are increasingly offering academic content to go with basic training in English, my colleague Mary Ann Zehr reports on her Learning the Language blog. Those results were included in the findings of a survey conducted by the Center for Applied Linguistics. Among the academic subjects of interest? Pre-algebra, according to the center.

Lack of English skill is a major hurdle for many students in math classes, as well as in science, as I've discussed in previous stories.

with english being our primary language in the united states, i think that students should be required to know it and be able to converse well with it.
