Video Research Recap
Aligning English Language Proficiency
Standards With Content Standards

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 3, 2019—A new article published in Educational Researcher, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), highlights challenges and opportunities in aligning English language proficiency (ELP) standards with academically rigorous content standards, as mandated by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015.

Author Okhee Lee (New York University) recently discussed the significance of her new article, "Aligning English Language Proficiency Standards With Content Standards: Shared Opportunity and Responsibility Across English Learner Education and Content Areas," with AERA in a new video.

"For English learner education, there is a lack of general consensus on what language is and how language is learned," said Okhee Lee. "Currently, there are multiple theoretical perspectives and multiple sets of ELP standards. Despite these challenges, English learner education and content standards must forge ahead in ensuring alignment."
