National R&D Center to Improve Education for Secondary ELs Launches Resource Website


WASHINGTON, DC, Feb. 2021In January, CSEL's sister center, the National Research & Development Center to Improve Education for Secondary English Learners, launched a new resource website aimed at providing "policymakers and practitioners compelling and actionable information that can lead to improvements in the field." Resources will include "publications, briefs, professional learning activities, and webinars."

This press release was originally posted on the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) website:

Many English Learners (ELs) in secondary school settings are identified as long-term ELs—students who have been enrolled in U.S. schools for six or more years who have not made significant progress in English—and are at risk for dropping out of high school. These students face unique challenges and barriers in accessing education opportunities, which has resulted in persistent differences in academic outcomes between ELs and non-ELs, as well as negative consequences that reach far beyond school.
