The Educational Linguist

What a great finding! The Educational Linguist is a Blog that examines language and race in education. I read this article about Latinx ELL students in Philadelphia and their ability or lack of to learn English. There is a mention about long term ELLs in the state of Texas and how a study found that the assessment used to exit students from their ELL status is not really aligned with their language and literacy levels. The author also argues about the disconnection between teacher knowledge and district mandates regarding interventions that do not actually address these students' needs.
