Leaving Non-English Speaking Students Behind

Hosted by

There are some 1.5 million students in California elementary and secondary schools who don’t speak, read, write or understand English. Schools are required to provide them with tutors, additional language materials and even separate classes. But a recent lawsuit alleges that at least 20,000 students are not getting that help. We speak with an expert who tracks the issue.
