Learning The Language, the not-to-be-missed EdWeek blog on English Language Learners, just ran an interview with our school’s exceptional principal, Ted Appel. 

In addition to correcting my error that we got out of Year Four Program Improvement, not Year Five as I had originally posted,  Ted talks about  how he thinks having a large number of English Language Learners at our school helped our school improve overall.

It’s a short but insightful piece worth reading.
