Unaccompanied children released to sponsors by county
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
When a child who is not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian is apprehended by immigration authorities, the child is transferred to the care and custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Federal law requires that ORR feed, shelter, and provide medical care for unaccompanied children until it is able to release them to safe settings with sponsors (usually family members), while they await immigration proceedings. These sponsors live in many states.

California lawmakers approve measure to repeal limits on bilingual education
Education Week
A piece of legislation aimed at asking California voters to overturn a 16-year-old state law that restricts the use of bilingual education in California's public schools has made it out of the legislature and now awaits action from Gov. Jerry Brown. The California State Assembly this week voted in favor of the measure that seeks to repeal Proposition 227, the 1998 voter-approved ballot measure that severely limited the availability of bilingual education programs for the state's large share of students who are still learning English.

US Department of Education projects public schools will be 'majority-minority' this fall
Pew Research Center
A milestone is expected to be reached this fall when minorities outnumber whites among the nation's public school students for the first time, U.S. Department of Education projections show. This is due largely to fast growth in the number of Hispanic and Asian school-age children born in the U.S., according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data. A steady demographic change over the years has resulted in a decline in the number of whites in classrooms even as the total number of public school students has increased. In 1997, the U.S. had 46.1 million public school students, of which 63.4 percent were white.

English language learners hold steady on MCAs
Minneapolis Star Tribune
Minnesota students who are learning to speak English held steady on both the math and reading portions of the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments. In math, 29 percent of students in grades 3-8 are proficient and 16 percent in grades 3, 8 and 10 are proficient in reading, according to those test results. The scores were unchanged from the previous year. At first blush, that might not sound like good news. But consider this. Last year, that subgroup of students had a free fall on the reading test, dropping 20 percentage points. Those declines were seen across the board, a consequence of tough, new standards on which students were tested. But English language learners easily experienced the biggest drop.

Computer games give a boost to English
Science Daily via University of Gothenburg
If you want to make a mark in the world of computer games you had better have a good English vocabulary.

This is revealed by a study at the University of Gothenburg and Karlstad University. The study confirms what many parents and teachers already suspected: young people who play a lot of interactive English computer games gain an advantage in terms of their English vocabulary compared with those who do not play or only play a little.
