English-Language Learners: Unlike other states with large numbers of English-language learners, Texas has not established a single, statewide process for schools to identify and assess those students and redesignate them as fluent in English, according to an examination of states’ policies for English-language learners.

California has the largest number, followed by Texas, Florida, Arizona, Illinois, and New York. The study also examined Massachusetts.
