About the Program

Many of California’s K–12 students are English Learners—some have been in US schools since kindergarten, while others are new to US schools and may be refugees or unaccompanied minors. Researchers Laura Hill and Megan Hopkins will outline findings from a new report that looks at academic progress among different kinds of English Learners and the factors associated with their successes and struggles.

This research was supported with funding from the William T. Grant Foundation.
