As I was updating the Education Meetings & Events tab at the top of my blog, I was perusing through the Delaware Public Meeting Calendar. I found an entry in December, January, and February for the Delaware Hispanic Commission. Their education committee is having meetings to discuss the treatment of English Language Learner students in Delaware. This is actually becoming a VERY big topic lately. I’ve been hearing both Red Clay and Christina are ill-equipped to handle this growing population. The students services are not being met, and parents are not happy.
If you are a parent or a teacher of an ELL student and you want to talk about the status of ELL in Delaware, please come to their next meeting on December 15th, 3pm, at 198 Commerce Way, Administration Building in Dover. It appears last month’s meeting of this committee was canceled.
