Síntesis de la Noticia: With nearly 10 percent of U.S. elementary and secondary students less than fully fluent in English, many school districts are struggling to develop the capacity to meet the needs of children from immigrant and refugee backgrounds. A new report from the Migration Policy Institute’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy examines the diverse approaches taken at federal, state and local levels to provide appropriate funding for the education of nearly 5 million English Learner (EL) students—most of whom are U.S. born. The report, Funding an Equitable Education for English Learners in the United States, examines the approaches being taken to design supplementary funding that meets EL needs and seeks to remedy the persistent achievement and outcome gaps between these students and their native English-speaking peers. The supplementary funding mechanisms fall in three categories: weighted formulas, categorical funding and state reimbursement to local districts.
