Quality Counts 2009--With British Spellings

The Guardian Weekly, a British newspaper, just published an adaptation of an article I had written for Quality Counts 2009 about the impact of provisions for English-language learners in the No Child Left Behind Act. The newspaper put a more provocative headline on the article, "No Child Left Behind, Did Bush Get It Right?", than did Education Week, but the content is basically the same as in "English-Learners Pose Policy Puzzle," which I shortened at the Guardian Weekly's request. Let me clarify that while the description of me at the end of the article says I'm "author" of Quality Counts 2009, in fact, the report is authored by a whole team of people from Education Week, including me, and the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center.

I discovered the Guardian Weekly publishes a regular section, "Learning English," about English instruction and learning around the world. The section reports on the use of technology for language teaching, such as how English learners in the United Arab Emirates and South Korea are meeting to practice English in the virtual world Second Life, as well as on the language policy of whole countries, such as India.

The section also provides classroom materials.
