Abstract

For more than three decades, the federal government had made steps toward meeting the needs of language minority students. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, however, marked a dramatic shift in education policy that devalues bilingual education and puts English language learners at the mercy of standardized tests that are written in a language in which they are not yet proficient.
