University of California Linguistic Minority Research Institute
This document is an extension of "Resource Needs for California's English Learners" and is the result of deliberations from several informal meetings and two formal meetings of major stakeholders in the area of English Learner (EL) education. Its intent is to suggest a series of policy options, based on data examined in the initial report that California should consider to strengthen the educational offerings and outcomes for the state's increasing population of linguistic minority students. Ten recommendations are offered. Two appendices include attendee lists for policy meetings. (Contains 16 footnotes and 1 figure.) [For "Resource Needs for California's English Learners" report, see ED503113.]
