This volume is a veritable sequel to August and Hakuta’s Improving Schooling for Language Minority Children. For people in the field like me, this volume is a must read book.

This major federally-funded research synthesis is a comprehensive identification of the important issues in the effective teaching of language minority students. The massive effort sheds light on many key questions. More importantly, through its systematic inquiry, it exposes a large number of important questions that are unaddressed and require research investments. As such, the book is a blueprint for a long-term research agenda.

“While there are many reasons that it is important, ultimately the value of this report is that it will contribute to an ongoing, national effort…to more fully understand and address the educational needs of language-minority children in an informed, evidence-based, intelligent, and compassionate manner. Our nation is now aware of its own changing demographics. This report, and the products it encourages and contributes to, should help us move beyond awareness to additional action.”
