District-by-district data include a list of school districts with "Lau" plans, a count of minority language children, subgroup data on LEP children, support services for LEP children beyond the regular classroom, instructor credentials for teaching LEP children, and federal projects. A separate section is devoted to data on LM and LEP students in individual private schools. A glossary is provided. (MSE)
