Resource Needs for English Learners: Getting Down to Policy Recommendations

by Patricia Gandara, Julie Maxwell-Jolly, and Russell Rumberger

In 2006, California's Governor and Legislature commissioned a set of
24 academic research papers to examine the educational governance and
finance systems of the state. The studies, collectively referred to as
Getting Down to Facts, were intended to form a basis for engaging
stakeholders in deep conversations about possible education policy

This Policy Report is an extension of one of those original 24 papers,
and is the result of deliberations from several informal meetings and
two formal convenings of major stakeholders in the area of English
learner education. Based on data examined in the initial report, it
suggests a series of policy options the state should consider to
strengthen the educational offerings and outcomes for California's
burgeoning population of linguistic minority students.
