Latest issue of the IDRA Newsletter – This month’s focus: English Learner Literacy

“English learners are  one of the lowest academically performing groups of students, and the achievement gap widens as students progress through school. Equal access to a quality education is the civil rights issue of our generation, and we must work in every way to make educational opportunity a reality.” – Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, IDRA President and CEO
