Lawsuit: Texas' English language programs fall short
The Texas Tribune
Texas has failed to properly monitor public school programs intended to help students with language barriers learn English, according to a federal lawsuit brought by a Hispanic legal advocacy group. In its lawsuit, the League of United Latin American Citizens alleges that the state's lack of support and supervision has led to "grossly deficient" language instruction programs, especially in middle and high schools where English language learning students "continue to perform abysmally." The complaint is a continuation of a legal battle between LULAC and the state that began in 2006, when the group sued over the same issue.

Here's how engaging lessons motivate English learners
eSchool News
The children at my school, Manzanita Community School in Oakland, California, face the multiple challenges of poverty and learning English. More than 75 percent of our students receive free or reduced lunch, and over half of the children are learning English as a second language. Our newest immigrants speak Karen (from Burma), Arabic (from Yemen and Jordan) and Nepalese. These and other unfamiliar languages present a challenge to our teaching staff.

MPS moves forward with resolution to promote bilingual education
WDJT-TV
Officials with Milwaukee Public Schools want to promote bilingual education in local schools. "Who wouldn't support this," said Dr. Tatiana Joseph, who represents District 6 on the MPS Board of Directors, "this is for the good of our children, we want to make sure that our children can compete in a global market." Dr. Joseph and Larry Miller, another board member, introduced a resolution that would commit more resources to bilingual education. The resolution was approved at an MPS committee meeting. Dr. Joseph says the demand for bilingual education continues to grow in Milwaukee.

Dual-language learning for all students is visionary
The Voice of Tucson
Being visionary didn't work for Arizona. Being reactionary was a bust, too. It's time to apply some hard-nosed realism to the fact that our schools are not serving a population of kids who are fast becoming the majority of K-12 students.

From second language learning to bilingualism in schools
Psychology Today
We are many who feel that education should help children and adolescents acquire a second or third language while retaining their first language. Education should also encourage the active use of those languages, if at all possible.

After parents rally, school district agrees to audit English language programs
The Beacon-News
An independent auditor will come to Oswego School District 308 in Illinois to evaluate four programs for English language learners this fall. The auditor will look at what's going right and wrong in the programs, as well as how much they are costing the district, and will make recommendations for future improvements that the district plans to "aggressively pursue and implement." The audit announcement comes after dozens of parents, teachers and students banded together to voice fears that the district's dual language program, which helps native English- and Spanish-speakers to fully master both languages, was on the chopping block.

Report: English language literacy in immigrant parents is important for early childhood education
Latin Post
Early childhood education is absent from the lives of the neediest, poorest and fastest-growing populations, in spite of the expansion of preschool programs meant to address the needs of children across the economic spectrum, particularly disadvantaged youths. And more than any others, children in immigrant households are the least likely to enroll their children in federal and state preschool programs, due mainly to language and literacy barriers.

Possible redemption for No Child Left Behind?
The Atlantic
In the ten years since its implementation, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 has been blamed for causing a decade-long decline in teacher job satisfaction and eroding teacher autonomy by taking control of curricula out of their hands. But a new study published online in Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, "Estimating the Effects of No Child Left Behind on Teachers and Their Work Environment," suggests that NCLB has not actually affected teacher happiness in these ways — on the contrary, some measures of job satisfaction, including classroom control and teachers' perceptions of administrator support, have increased on average since the implementation of the legislation.

Is background TV harming your toddler's language development?
Taylor & Francis via Science Daily
We already know how important parent input is in developing children's language skills, and that a reduction in child-directed language could have a negative impact on their language development. New research suggests that the presence of background TV is a significant factor in reducing this vital input, affecting both the quantity and quality of language spoken by parents to their children.
