Description:

The paper provides an overview of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation and its impact on education. The paper provides statistical data that highlights the notable challenges faced by English language learners (ELLs) in California's public schools when it comes to achieving basic standards. The paper is concerned that as the number of ELL students continues to increase, the gaps created under NCLB will continue to have a disproportionate impact on the schools in California.
