Flexibility Principle 1: College- and Career-Ready Expectations for All Students
National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition & Language Instruction Educational Programs
Within the US Department of Education's new flexibility initiative, there are three key and fundamental areas of interest, each referred to as a "principle." The first of these is that State Education Agencies (SEAs) must adopt and implement college- and career-ready (CCR) standards for all students. This brief provides information on CCR expectations for all students, with a focus on English learners [ELs]. The majority of materials related to CCR and ELs have been produced within the last three years, with no relevant document identified prior to 2006. There is no single document that provides an overview of the issues and includes research and recommendations for educators, although the various materials identified do provide some recommendations and considerations. The documents related to CCR focus on the importance of good instruction and assessment for ELs. Essential to providing good instruction is the need for well-trained teachers. This document identifies a number of resources that address the principle of CCR expectations for all students, with a focus on ELs. It identifies resources produced by nationally-known organizations, federally-funded centers, research centers, and similar entities completed between 2006 and 2011. Each of these resources reports on research, evaluations, best practices, and/or theory for the CCR principle. When available, URLs are provided for the electronic version of the document.
