White House, ED Working On Helping Black ELL Students.

Education Week (10/13) reports that ED and the White House are collaborating on finding “ways to better serve the nation’s black English-language learners in K-12 schools,” noting that ED’s Office of English-Language Acquisition and the White House Initiative on Education Excellence for African Americans have released a fact sheet showing “that Spanish, French Creole, and French are the most common languages spoken at home by the 130,000-plus English-learners.” The article notes that the fact sheet is “the first in a series of tools and guides designed to ‘support educators and communities who work with Black students and families from around the world.’”
