The number of students in U.S. schools who speak limited English grew from about 2 million students to 3 million from the 1993-94 school year to the end of the last decade, a two-page issue brief released by the National Center for Education Statistics says.

In the 1999-2000 school year, English-language learners made up about 7 percent of the school-age population. That same year, more than half of English-language learners attended public schools in which less than 1 percent of all students had that designation.
