The eighth "ETS Addressing Achievement Gaps Symposium" provided a public forum for educators, policymakers, and researchers to forge productive relationships that will advance their efforts to enhance the educational achievement of America's five million English-language learners (ELLs). The conference was held at ETS world headquarters in Princeton, N.J., Jan. 15-16, 2008. The symposium featured leading experts who have devoted years to studying, writing, and advocating for the diverse population of ELL students. The conference attracted more than 300 participants, including teachers, administrators, teacher educators, researchers, and policy analysts from across the country. This issue of "ETS Policy Notes" offers an overview of the issues, research, and insights highlighted at the conference. (Contains 4 figures.) [This document was edited by Richard J.
