LANGUAGE EDUCATION CONFERENCE COMMITTEE TO MEET

A conference committee will meet Friday to begin House-Senate negotiations over legislation to reshape how non-native English speakers are educated in public schools.

Known as Language Opportunity for Our Kids, or the LOOK bill, the (H 3740/S 2134) legislation would upend a 2002 ballot law that requires, with limited exceptions, English-immersion instruction for all students, including those who are still more comfortable speaking other languages. The bills that cleared the House 151-2 and the Senate unanimously would do away with that requirement, giving districts more leeway in how they teach English language learners.
