English Language Learners

Immigrant Education

Students from non-English-speaking backgrounds are the fastest growing segment of the K–12 student population in the United States. An increasing number of these students are newcomers—recent arrivals to the United States who have limited or no English language proficiency and who often have had limited formal education in their native countries.

Several of CAL’s projects and resources are designed to support the implementation of programs for immigrant students, including newcomers.
