5 million ELLs in the U.S. as of 2009
ELLs make up around 10% of all students in K-12 schools.
By the year 2030, ELLs will likely make up around 25% of school population
Spanish Speakers account for 62% of all ELLs.

Program Options for ELLS
1. English Immersion:
Instruction in given in English.
Instruction starts in child's native language and then moves to English.

Which Type of Program is Best?
Research supports that bilingual programs are generally better, but the most important factor is the quality of instruction, not the language of instruction.
