Three out of four U.S. elementary school students with limited proficiency in English were born in the United States, concludes a study.

Conducted by researchers from the Washington-based Urban Institute, the study found that only 24 percent of limited-English-proficient students in elementary schools were born in a foreign country; 59 percent are the children of immigrants; and 18 percent are the grandchildren of immigrants.
