N.Y.C. Pledges More ELL Support
New York City schools will provide more help to immigrants and other English-language learners and their families under a plan approved by the state last week. State education Commissioner John B. King Jr. said the city plan will include 125 new bilingual programs over the next three years. Parents will have a choice of the traditional approach of English as a Second Language or bilingual education, with some instruction carried out in Spanish or another language.
