"Rigorous standards are definitely something all students haven't been accessing before," said Jeannette LaFors, director of Equity Initiatives at the Education Trust-West.
...
"Effective districts are consistently evaluating how successful their interventions are, working at the individual level, at the grade level, at the school level and across the district," said LaFors.
...
"Some people don't want to scare people about the Common Core," said LaFors.
...
"We tried to tease out some of the things that are consistent that we see across the successful districts," said LaFors.
...
"That is a big shift in the way we have been teaching English-language learners for the last decade or two," said LaFors.
Selma teachers learned effective ways to do this through a "coaching team" created by their district three years ago, shortly after the state legislature voted to adopt the Common Core standards. "The good news," said LaFors, is that the Common Core's increased emphasis on language skills is encouraging "teachers to engage in more give and take with students, and that is benefitting English learners.
...
"Too often, English learners are labeled and tracked and stuck in a classroom with the least skilled and prepared teachers, partly because their parents tend to be the least empowered if their children are not getting services," LaFors said.
...
Noting that there are high poverty schools that score higher on both state achievement and English acquisition tests than lower poverty schools, LaFors added that these general trends need to be put in perspective. "It is a predictor," LaFors added.
