U.S. Report:English learners require better support

March 7, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

The National Academies of Sciences Engineering Medicine  has released [news release] a new report titled Promoting the Educational Success of Children and Youth Learning English:  Promising Futures (2017) – it can be downloaded but you need to create an account. 

Description: “Educating dual language learners (DLLs) and English learners (ELs) effectively is a national challenge with consequences both for individuals and for American society. Despite their linguistic, cognitive, and social potential, many ELs—who account for more than 9 percent of enrollment in grades K-12 in U.S. schools—are struggling to meet the requirements for academic success, and their prospects for success in postsecondary education and in the workforce are jeopardized as a result.”

From the news release: “It can take from five to seven years for a child who initially has no or limited proficiency in English to learn the English necessary for participation in the school’s curriculum without further linguistic support, the report says.  Secondary schools continue to fail to meet the diverse needs of long-term ELs — typically students who have not been reclassified as English-proficient after seven years — including their linguistic, academic, and socio-emotional needs.”
