Projected Number of English Language Learners (ELL)
Can you name the five states with the fastest-growing English-Language Learner population?
By 2010, 1 in every 4 students attending U.S. schools will be an English-Language Learner. In a few states, English-Language Learners already represent the majority at 62% of total enrollment. Those states are California, Texas, Florida, New York, and Illinois. Yet, the states with the fastest growing populations of students who are English-Language Learners include Georgia, Montana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Schools need instructional programs that have been proven to help English-Language Learners gain proficiency in English and achieve the same academic standards as native English-speaking children. Zip Zoom English has been proven to help close the achievement gaps between English-Language Learners and their English-speaking peers.
