Schools Look Closer at How to Help High School ELLs Get Credits

I've learned from my reporting and the questions that edweek.org received during a recent chat about the future of the education of English-language learners that schools struggle with how to help ELLs to graduate with a high school diploma. It seems that, in particular, many school districts struggle with how to provide ELLs who arrive as teenagers in U.S. schools with access to the regular core curriculum. I've written an article, "High School Credits for ELLs Still a Challenge," for this week's Education Week about this issue.
