ESL Students

A new report, Portrait of a Population: How English-Language Learners Are Putting Schools to the Test, has been released.

Also included are interviews with thirteen students that highlight the struggles faced by so many immigrant children.

In June, The New York Times published an article about International High School's first prom--a Brooklyn school founded four years ago with a student body that is 100% recent immigrants. You can meet some of its students in this video.
