  1. Arizona reports gap in English learning compliance

    A new review says many Arizona public schools don’t comply with requirements for instruction of students learning the English language, and the state’s top education official says he plans to start reporting noncompliant districts starting in the fall.

    That could subject those districts to possible withholding of some state funding provided for English Language Learning programs.
