The James Irvine Foundation Briefing Series
Pathways to Fluency
ABOUT THE PROGRAMAbout one in four students in California's public schools is an English Learner. As the state overhauls K-12 standards, testing, and funding, questions about how and when English Learner students should be reclassified as fully English proficient take on new urgency. PPIC researchers Laura Hill and Julian Betts will talk about their findings on the relationship between reclassification policies and academic success among students in the two largest school districts in the state.
This research is supported with funding from the Donald Bren Foundation and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund.
