The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up the Obama administration's policy offering relief for undocumented immigrant parents of children who are U.S. citizens.


Some ELL researchers say the new ESSA law fails to make bilingualism and biliteracy a priority for all students in the United States, including English learners.


While districts can estimate how many new students they will be absorbing from the border crisis, many won't know how many additional resources they'll need until students show up.


Starting with the graduating class of 2017, Utah will offer a two-tier seal of biliteracy to recognize students who demonstrate fluency in two or more languages.


West Virginia, Arkansas and Iowa were the states where graduation rates for ELLs topped 80 percent. Less than a third of English-learners in Arizona and Nevada graduated on time.
