Justice For English Language Learners

This week I was asked to be a Guest Blogger for Education Week. Rick Hess’s Straight Up blog examines policy and practice related to current issues in education. I decided to focus my posts on issues related to English Language learners. Although education has made progress in terms of providing services for English learners, I argue that many of these practices and policies may serve to marginalize this group of students.

What are some ways that schools, districts and teachers can provide Justice For English Language Learners and address the diverse needs of English learners?
