English learner (EL) students in Oklahoma are those students who have been formally identified through the state EL identification process. Once identified, districts are required to provide a research-based program (LIEP) tasked to deliver appropriate and sufficient supplemental supports designed to move EL students toward English-language proficiency. The primary goal in EL education is to provide content-based instruction while continuously developing English-language proficiency. The briefs below explore various issues regarding this particular group of Oklahoma students.
