Title:Closing achievement gaps: Improving educational outcomes for Hispanic children: English language acquisition and middle school preparation: Keys to Latino educational success
Organization:Tomas Rivera Policy Institute
Short Description:This report addresses two issues in the Hispanic community: English language acquisition and preparation for middle school. In doing so, the authors hope to foster a shared level of understanding among policymakers nationwide by proposing policy recommendations and actions that can be taken.
Annotation:Major demographic developments in our nation’s schools, most notably the growing Hispanic1 population and increasing number of English Language Learners (ELLs), require the immediate attention of education stakeholders. If schools are to serve all students adequately and fairly, we must start at the root of our main educational problems. To that end, focusing on how to improve the under-education of Hispanic youth is the goal of this brief, prepared jointly by the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) and the Tomás Rivera Policy Institute (TRPI). It is an effort to bring policy saliency—at the national, state and local levels—in the midst of a national educational crisis. Specifically, this report addresses two issues in the Hispanic community: English language acquisition and preparation for middle school. In doing so, the authors hope to foster a shared level of understanding among policymakers nationwide by proposing policy recommendations and actions that can be taken.
