Garcia, Peggie; Morales, P. Zitlali – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2016
Although there has been a great deal of debate about the effectiveness of charter schools in the research literature, there has been surprisingly little attention paid to English language learners (ELLs) in charter schools.

Phillips, Deborah A. – Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 2017
Preschool education is now firmly linked to two aspirational purposes: as the first step on a trajectory of academic and life success for all children and as wise economic policy for the nation.
