Report of the Limited English (LEP) Student Enrollment Survey.
Olsen, Roger E. W-B
The results of a national survey concerning the enrollment of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in elementary, secondary, adult basic, and adult secondary education are presented and summarized. Data are drawn from information provided by chief state school officers, federal agencies, and individual respondents to the survey. The study is divided into two main parts. The first section provides a narrative summary of the survey and includes tables with select comparisons and estimates of students who are not reported as limited English proficient. The second section consists of two tabular summaries of the data base assembled: Reported Enrollments 1985-88; and State Profiles. The Reported Enrollments show K-12 enrollments of LEP students; K-12 estimates of limited-English-functioning students (language minority students who have some proficiency but not enough to benefit from English-only instruction); adult enrollments; and reported school enrollments (total and subcategories of LEP). The State Profiles show programs and funding, identification criteria, and primary languages identified by "speakers of languages other than English." (MSE)
