English Language Learners should be provided with as much opportunity to learn and succeed as any other students. It would be most beneficial for each school to have its own full-time ESL/ELL teacher, who is trained in helping individuals of all academic and English-language levels, and is able to provide extra-curricular, one-on-one tutoring. Furthermore, the ESL/ELL program should promote a high degree of parent communication and involvement; thus ensuring that students receive support from school, as well as the home environment. If the parents speak little to no English, it would be desirable to have a translator available for parent teacher conferences, provide reports cards both in English and the student’s native language, and develop materials in the native language to send home as well.
