Teaching Tolerance, an education project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, has published a guide designed to help educators ensure that English-language learners and their families have equitable experiences at school.

"For many educators, helping children learn English is a joy and a privilege," the report says. "But classroom educators may not always know how their administration is approaching ELL students and vice versa."

The report recommends districts devise consistent strategies for enrolling English-learners, engaging with parents, and building anti-bias work into classroom culture.
