Patterns of Student Mobility Among English Language Learner Students in Arizona Public Schools

By Tony Fong, Soung Bae, Min Huang


Research shows that high rates of student mobility are associated with lower student achievement and, for English language learners, increased time needed to become proficient in English. Arizona has a high rate of both — student mobility and English language learners.

This study, prepared by REL West, examines the magnitude of student mobility throughout Arizona, especially among English language learner students.

A short summary of the report is also available.

Information about the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) system and other REL publications can be found at the National Regional Educational Laboratory Program website.
