Survey of Limited English Proficient (LEP) Student Enrollments, 1993.
Olsen, Roger E. W-B
The 1993 report presents information from an annual survey of the states concerning enrollment of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in public elementary/secondary and adult education. It updates an enrollment database covering the school years 1985-86 through 1993-94. An introductory section describes and summarizes the study. Subsequent extensive data tables present: (1) K-12 and adult enrollments for each year of the database and each state and territory; and (2) profiles for each state, containing data on total public school and adult education enrollments, reported LEP enrollments, LEP percentages, program numbers and funding in several program categories, identification criteria, and first languages of LEP enrollees, for each year. Two trends are seen: that the number of students recognized as LEP is increasing; and that more school systems are reporting LEP student information. Identification criteria continue to vary by state. Further research on teacher certification requirements, program models, and estimates of limited-English-functioning students is recommended. (MSE)
