A group of prominent researchers on English-learners is forcefully challenging the findings of a recent working paper that posits that 3rd grade retention was a benefit to struggling English-learners in Florida.


The first products of a multi-district purchasing group that aims to improve curricula for English-learners are middle school math materials, designed with the goal of preparing more ELLs to take Algebra I by 9th grade.


If the "Protect Sensitive Locations Act" law gains traction in Congress, the legislation may not fully clear up confusion around the obligations that schools must balance when dealing with immigration agents: ensuring the safety and privacy of their students while still cooperating with federal officials.


In a nearly three-minute video, a pair of veteran ELL teachers outline advice on how educators can identify students' individual strengths, needs, and interests and develop lesson plans that are accessible to all English-learners.


Principals have the power to ensure English-language learners get an equitable education, but many don't realize how much influence they wield, a new study on school leadership concludes.


New research shows that requiring struggling English-learners to repeat 3rd grade could boost their academic trajectories, helping them learn English faster and take more advanced classes once they reach middle and high school.
