Private schools have a long and important tradition in U.S. education and have been the focus of a great deal of political controversy in recent years.

Santibañez, Lucrecia; Gándara, Patricia – Civil Rights Project - Proyecto Derechos Civiles, 2018
Across the nation, nearly all teachers can expect to have EL students in their classrooms. The challenges of teaching ELs students are particularly acute in the nation's secondary schools.

In 2011, Washington, DC reached a non-black majority for the first time in more than a half century, and since 2000, the city's white population has increased from just over a quarter to well over a third of the total population. This…
