Education

Hi,
I just have a question about this assignment I have. It says to complete an internet search to find at least two instances of conflicts between the legal and ethical issues confronting the education of ELLs. "For example, some states have ceased funding for bilingual education and may not instruct the ELLs in their native languages. However, the issue still remains that the schools are responsible for instructing ELLs and those students have to learn English in order to succeed in school."

Is me teacher looking for websites that discuss this issue or she is asking for specific issues that are currently taking place in any school or state?

I have found a few websites to add in this that show ways to improve the problem and better explain the issue. I can't post these website links, but I used Google to find these. I actually have about 5 of them, but I just want to know exactly which type of instances she is looking for in this assignment.

Thanks.

  1. This is the key part of your assignment:

    . . . find at least two instances of conflicts between the legal and ethical issues confronting the education of ELLs.

    I believe your teacher is looking for the issues taking place in any school or state. She wants you to support your knowledge of these issues with websites.

    In my experience, instructing each child in his/her first language is nearly impossible. For instance, in my small rural Michigan school district, we had one Laotian student. I can't imagine that we had a qualified Laotian teacher to instruct him in his own language. Another time years ago we hired a college-educated psychologist who was a native Spanish-speaker. But the poor Mexican child he tried to test didn't understand him because of huge differences in vocabulary and dialect.
