Two groups are calling on states to alter policies to ensure that English language learners are better served by the country's charter schools. A report, released by the National Council of La Raza and the Center for American Progress, recommends amending charter-school laws to provide such schools with equal access to federal and state funding for ELL programs. The report also recommends ensuring that ELL students have equity of access to charter-school enrollment and requiring that charter-school operators have a plan to support ELLs before opening a school.
