English Learners

English learners (ELs) make up a large and growing share of our student body, yet they continue to be systematically underserved and marginalized in our nation’s schools. TCF pushes for policy reforms that both address the distinct needs of ELs, as well as recognize the many strengths and untapped potential that these students bring.


The National Newcomer Network aims to provide a space for people who care about newcomers to come together to push our education system to adequately support the real needs of newcomers everywhere. Learn more at tcf.org/nnn
