Schools need more certified ESL teachers nationwide


According to Brookings Institute, "English learners (ELs) is the most rapidly growing subgroup of public school students across the United States—the number of ELs grew by roughly 60% over the past decade. ELs currently account for nearly 10 percent of all students nationwide and has consequently transformed the demographic composition of U.S. schools.

In addition, EL students lag far behind their native English peers in school outcomes. The achievement gap between current EL and non-EL students in fourth-grade reading and in eighth-grade math is about 40 percentage points.
