Comparing Attitudes and Practices Among Educators Serving Large Proportions of English Learners in California and Three Other States
For several years, WestEd’s Measure to Learn and Improve (MLI) project team has kept state policy leaders informed about statewide implementation of the California Academic Standards in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics, by summarizing and disseminating survey results from the RAND Corporation’s annual American Educator Panel (AEP) surveys of teachers and principals.
This brief contrasts the perceptions of California educators who serve a relatively high proportion of English learner (EL) students (i.e., over 25 percent of students) with the perceptions of educators who are serving a relatively high proportion of EL students in three comparison states.
The survey-elicited opinions of these groups of educators align in many areas, but they differ on issues related to:
- Considerations in choosing materials
- Data use practices among principals
- Supports for social and emotional learning
