California is home to 1.4 million English Language Learners. These students represent a range of cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds; varying levels of formal schooling, proficiency in their native languages and English literacy; and a diversity of experiences in the home, school and community.
There are two primary goals for California EL’s as described in the CA ELA/ELD Framework. The first is to ensure the English Learners acquire full proficiency in English as rapidly and effectively as possible and attain parity with native speakers of English. The second is to ensure that English learners, within a reasonable period of time, achieve the same rigorous grade-level academic standards that are expected of all students.
