Classroom Accommodations for ESL Students
Mobile County Public School System
English as a Second Language Program
ESL Students must receive accommodations:
The Civil Rights Act, Title VI 1964
“No person in the United States, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” -42 U.S.C. § 2000d.
The failure of a school system to provide English language instruction to national origin students who do not speak English, or to provide them with other adequate instruction denies them a meaningful opportunity to participate in the public educational program.
- Lau v. Nichols
(U.S. Supreme Court Decision, 1974).
Lack of English proficiency does not mean there is a lack of content knowledge or thought.
Using teaching strategies and learning resources that make content comprehensible is the key to helping the student understand the content, learn the language, and be engaged in the learning process.
