ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of the Pacific
This qualitative study explored stakeholders' (administrators, teachers, and parents) perspectives of English learners in the learning center, a response to intervention model, at a school district in Central California. Research existed concerning the yearly academic growth of students in a learning center, but there was a lack of knowledge about what these stakeholders thought of it. It is important to find out what they think of the program in order to see if it is a positive or negative for English learners. This study adds to the existing scholarship by describing what the stakeholders think of this intervention for English learners. Using interviews and observations, this qualitative study showed that parents of these English learners were satisfied with their children participating in this program and had seen growth in their children over the year. These findings may be useful for administrators, teachers and parents of English learners who want to provide reading intervention like the one at the learning center. This study concludes by providing areas of further research and conclusions. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
