Analysis of 2008 NCLB Accountability for ELL Students in California
Chavez, Lisa
Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute on Race, Ethnicity and Diversity
In "Horne v. Flores," Petitioners in the Supreme Court have argued, among other things, that compliance with the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) should satisfy state obligations and, other than "individual instances of discrimination," district obligations to comply with the Equal Educational Opportunities Act. The purpose of this analysis is to examine the number of English Language Learners (ELLs) enrolled in California's public schools who are not "counted" in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) accountability system, particularly among schools and districts with ELLs that met NCLB objectives, and to compare ELL proficiency rates with whites in those schools and districts. Accordingly, the analysis was guided by the following questions: (1) How many ELLs are: (a) not considered part of an ELL subgroup because they are deemed not numerically significant or (b) are enrolled in grade levels excluded from the NCLB accountability framework when analyzed statewide and in schools and districts with ELLs that met NCLB objectives?; and (2) What are the proficiency rates for ELLs and whites in schools and districts with ELLs that met NCLB objectives? (Contains 5 tables and 2 footnotes.)
