English learners (ELs) make up approximately one quarter of California’s six million public school students and come from a wide range of backgrounds — from students who have recently arrived from another country to those who have attended US schools for years. English learner students have the dual challenge of learning English while learning through English, as well as the asset of knowing two or more languages and cultures. These reports and articles provide information about English learners and the best ways to meet their needs in order to close existing achievement gaps between EL students and their peers.
