Texas Can Better Serve Emergent Bilingual Students
See Our New Report on Creating a More Bilingual Texas
March 11, 2021
Texas public schools enroll emergent bilingual (English learner) students at twice the national rate. Yet, educational policy conversations often overlook emergent bilingual students and bilingual education.
IDRA co-authored a new report released today in partnership with Every Texan.
The report, Creating a More Bilingual Texas, provides an overview of policies, history and current issues for emergent bilingual students and bilingual/ESL education in Texas. It also shares recommendations to address the ongoing challenges to achieving educational equity for emergent bilingual students.
