Fallout From the Government Shutdown That Almost Happened

The federal government shutdown that almost—but didn't—happen had an impact on one event planned concerning English-language learners.

The last of three "national conversations" about ELL policy planned by the office of English-language acquisition of the U.S. Department of Education has been postponed. A note from Rosalinda B. Barrera, the director of that office, posted late last week on the web site of the National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition says that her office will let people know when the event is rescheduled.

The forum was originally scheduled to occur today and tomorrow in New York City.
