Students learning ESOL with vouchers might be getting shortchanged
Florida law governing the tax credit scholarship program gives vouchers to low-income families to use as tuition for their children in private schools but does not adequately protect the rights of English Language Learners (ELLs), shortchanging Latino students and other groups learning English as an additional language from receiving proper instruction. This flaw in Florida law must be rectified in order to improve educational opportunities for Latinos.
