DOJ looking into BPS' instruction for English language learners

The U.S. Department of Justice has launched an inquiry into how Boston Public Schools teaches English language learners, according to this Boston Globe article. The article says, "42 percent of its nearly 11,000 English language learners were not receiving the help they are legally entitled to."

The school system is implementing the first phase of a three-year plan this year, but that pace may be too slow for federal officials.
