Title:Selected states response to supporting high school English language learners
Organization:National High School Center
Short Description:Closing the achievement gap between English language learners (ELLs) and White, African-American, and English-fluent Hispanic student groups is critical to ensuring the academic success of the approximately 2.4 million ELLs in the United States, many of whom lag behind their peers in state, district, and school assessments.
Annotation:The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 holds states, districts, and schools responsible for the success of students learning the English language, but lack of accurate or uniform data from local educational agencies (LEAs) hampers the ability of states to monitor and report the progress of ELLs. Improvement in data collection, assessment, instruction, and accurate reporting of academic achievement results for high school ELLs is crucial, not only for accountability but also for shaping policy around improved instruction, effective teaching, and access to appropriate levels of support.
