English, Language Education, and America’s Future

The lack of a national standard for how English-language learners are identified and tracked—and the lack of a uniform standard even within some states—makes it difficult for anyone to know how well such students are doing academically, a report by the Alexandria, Va.-based National Association of State Boards of Education says.

The report recommends that states establish a standard way to identify and monitor English-language learners, select and develop a system of viable and reliable assessments for such students, and require all educators to receive training on how to work with English-language learners.
