INVEST IN OUR FUTURE:
MULTILINGUAL LEARNERS IN NYS
Multilingual Learners (MLLs), also referred to as English Language Learners or ELLs, significantly lag behind their non-MLL peers when it comes to academic achievement and graduation rates.
The New York State Board of Regents and the New York State Education Department are trying to solve this crisis with policies and programs that provide increased support to MLLs. However, these efforts cannot be implemented without adequate funding from the NYS legislature and the Governor’s Office.
New York State Leadership MUST act NOW to include the necessary resources and supports for MLLs.
MORE MUST BE DONE TO ENSURE THAT MLLS RECEIVE A QUALITY EDUCATION THAT PUTS THEM ON THE PATHWAY TO POSTSECONDARY SUCCESS
Invest in Our Future
Due to a lack of resources and supports, MLLs in NYS are not performing.
Deprived of a chance to achieve their dreams
NEW YORK STATE MUST DO BETTER BY ITS MULTILINGUAL LEARNERS.
