Summary

English Language Learners are the fastest growing segment of the student population-yet their voices are rarely heard. ELLs now comprise 10.5 percent of the nation’s K-12 student enrollment; some estimates project it to be as high as twenty-five percent in the next decade. In this session, two current ELL students will speak about their experiences in a public setting, sharing their personal challenges in the classroom, in school and their daily lives. This firsthand account of ELL students' lives will be coupled with an ELL education specialist and ELL entrepreneur, who will share their experiences supporting ELL students and specifics actions their schools and districts are taking.
