Efforts are under way by parents, educators and advocates to recruit more immigrant students who are English-language learners to Boston charter schools. The push is a bid to comply with a law that requires enrollment at charter schools to reflect the demographics of the surrounding neighborhoods. The recruitment drive will include television, radio and newspaper advertisements as well as canvassing with fliers printed in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole and Chinese in neighborhoods known to have large immigrant populations.
