DeVos Plan to End ELL Office Stoking Equity Concerns

June 18, 2018

Corey Mitchell reports for Education Week that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ plan to shut down “the long-standing federal office that supports English-learners,” comes amid “concerns from civil rights groups that the Education Department has already failed to ensure equity for English-learners—including approving state Every Student Succeeds Act plans that they contend violate the law and don’t account for ELLs’ needs.”
